Mona Kuhn 835 Kings Road
In her latest multimedia installation, Mona Kuhn lyrically reconsiders the realms of time and space within the architectural elements of the Schindler House in Los Angeles. Built by Austrian architect Rudolph M. Schindler in 1922, the house was both a social and design experiment and an avant-garde hub for intellectuals and artists in the 1920s and ’30s.
Taking the form of large projections, choreographed with original music, and archival materials from the Schindler collection, the installation tells a story about an unrequited love unfolding on different time and space layers. The protagonist is a mysterious woman, purportedly a past lover of the architect Rudolph Schindler, who longs for his presence as she sneaks into his vacant and shadowy house.
