Hauser & Wirth's new installation by Thomas Houseago, “Moun Room,” is immediately arresting, drawing us into a 40,000 square-foot, sky-lit hangar. Reminiscent of visual labyrinths like China's Temple of the Moon, Moun Room's skeletal appearance at once entices and repels, which makes the structure's single doorway and that which lies inside all the more appealing.
The installation is covered in textured hemp fiber, which reveals the structure beneath, along with a spectrum of sienna hues from rusting steel supports underneath. This harsh exterior juxtaposes the delicately cracking and smooth, fleshy monochrome of the interior's crescent-forms, reliefs, and circular windows. Made by casting plaster from an initial clay model, it is an extremely delicate sculpture despite its hulking size. Houseago one day wants to cast "Moun Room" in bronze.

To be able to photograph the most beautiful people at HalloQueens with Susanne Bartsch and MoMA/PS1 was such a special moment. Looking through my lens and capturing the beauty, I felt like a kid in a candy store. There was so much magic in the air. I imagine it was like the feeling Dorothy must have felt while filming on the set of "The Wizard of Oz." Much love to MoMA/PS1, Susanne Bartsch, and the entire cast and crew. Click through for images from the night.
