Walls 4 Sale: near new and supersized

Delving into the mysterious and hyper-competitive world of real estate advertising and sales, BTVV present Walls 4 Sale: near new and supersized 2020, a newly commissioned exhibition inviting audiences to reflect upon the visual properties of the walls, floors, windows and doors that make up the contemporary apartment dwelling. Visitors will step inside this visually arresting, quirky and – at times – hilarious speculative interior, which at first appears as a generic, mass-produced apartment development in inner-urban Melbourne. It is in fact an architectural collage of the ‘worst practices’ of real estate photography featuring manipulated interior perspectives and ‘coveted’ appliances and material finishes. A satirical work of architecture that pokes serious fun at ubiquitous, low-quality property development, while also teasing our peculiar cultural penchant for homogeneous, white on white interiors.
