Cells (2018)

"Every being and every organ has a pre-determined design" – inspired by this quote from Claude Bernard, LNLO has pictured the facade of the theatre as a mother matrix that breathes life into the architectural "cells". The duo has left no stone unturned, as it were, when it comes to the details of the facade: the bas-relief, columns, frieze, decorative masks and coat of arms. LNLO plays on this eclecticism, emphasising the classical, ancient and baroque "genes", which they have stylised to generate a host of cells that are never identical. These beings will start to wander, grow, divide and multiply to cover the entire face of the theatre… before disappearing only to start a new cycle once more. It's a thought-provoking installation that is also highly unusual and fun.
