Stage City is an alternative reading of London that explores the performative potential and secret life of London’s buildings and urban landscape. Fragments of buildings and city spaces are anthropomorphised and edited to form an assemblage of characters, props and sets. The mirrored surface of the model creates an endless grid of reflections and folds in the space of the gallery and the viewer. The model has been shown at the Prague Quadrennial 2011 and the V&A, London, in 2012.
