LIVING INSIDE A MONDRIAN PAINTING. The Tate Liverpool has organized an exhibition entitled Mondrian and his Studios to mark the 70th anniversary of Piet Mondrian’s death. Here is a description of the exhibit from the floornature blog, which points out that: “the key point in the exhibition is a full-scale reconstruction of Piet Mondrianâ€™s studio in Rue du DÃ©part in Paris”. Here is the Tate’s announcement with a photo of two visitors inside the “immersive life-size reconstruction”. The reconstruction is based on a 1926 photograph of the studio by Paul Delbo. The Tate says that the reconstruction “provides a clear sense of the relationship between architectural space and Mondrianâ€™s use of primary colours and straight lines”.
The room is startling. Being in it would give the sense of living in a Mondrian abstraction.
