Smiljan Radic presents an artistic film essay on some of his – temporary – architectures. It creates references between his projects with objects of cultural and pop history. Radic’s film implies parallels between his Serpentine Pavilion (2014) in London and the follies, artificial ruins that were common in 18th century English landscape gardens; the Nave Performing Arts Hall (2015) in Santiago de Chile resembles a circus tent; the inflatable installation for the Céline show at Paris Fashion Week 2017 evokes associations with Marilyn Monroe’s iconic scene with the white skirt blowing up.
“Grace touches the ground under gravity like the smile of a ruin.”
