More about the artwork

With this work, Lucy McKenzie has reproduced, at life size, marble parts of the Villa Müller in Prague - a building considered a landmark of early modernism. In doing so, she followed the trail of the influential and notorious architect Adolf Loos, who designed the villa as a complete work in 1929. The marble pieces painted by McKenzie are located in the "Lady's Room" - named after and designed for Milada Müller, the wife of the commissioner František Müller, co-owner of a construction company. Almost like a television set or a theater stage, a view through the frame opens up onto the dramatic as well as the ordinary. With her work McKenzie reveals the internal paradox between the building’s austere public façade and the opulent private sphere hidden behind it.
