Rainbow-Hued Installation Feels Like Stepping into a Cartoon

Tucked behind the David Chipperfield-designed Turner Contemporary art gallery in Margate, England, this surreal installation by Dutch artist Krijn de Koning offers a Phantom Tollbooth-esque step into what looks like a two-dimensional fort made from brightly colored construction paper. Called the Dwelling, the angular maze of boxes is painted in hues meant to reference "traditional seaside pavilions and beach huts," and comes punctured with cut-out doors and windows that loop together to form a labyrinthine-like trail for visitors. "The site-specific works —part architecture, part sculpture—challenge the viewer," says the museum of the latest additon, "[It] offers new possibilities to navigate and experience the space the works inhabit." Find another shot of the delightfully confusing piece, below, then head over the Dezeen for the full story.
