Made specifically for this setting, Ulla von Brandenburg’s installation Death of a King highlights the architectural peculiarities of the place while at the same time underlining its role. It evolves on a platform with two levels, and readopts the structure of a skateboard ramp which the visitor is free to explore. A painting on the ground giving a trompe-l’oeil account of a colored, pleated curtain with a Harlequin motif, seemingly escaped from the Commedia dell’Arte, covers the whole surface. Thus a parable about theatre emanates from this installation and this space, located between fiction and reality, a sort of sign indicating the start of a story.

Please paint me the brave little toaster (from the children’s animation film) in bed with two slim sexy soldiers (the bread type), smoking a cigar with used pop tart wrappers strewn across the floor and an empty tub of ‘I cant believe its not butter’ on the side. To the side of the room, an egg has walked in to find the scene and has spurted his yolk everywhere in anger, as the soldiers are HIS bitches. Also note he has matching Marmite curtains and bedsheets with slogan, keeping toast filthy since 1914!
