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 Mondrian’s studio in Rue du Départ 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 Mondrian’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.
