Two way mirror and hedge labyrinth

This work belongs to a type created by Dan Graham since 1978 - the Pavilions that are sculptures directly related to the place where they are placed, whether it is the vestibule of a building, a public park, or a landscaped setting. They adopt different geometric forms, although cubes predominate, as in Two Adjacent Pavilions, which inaugurated this type of structure. Sometimes the cube is open on one of its sides, spreading out in order to take in greater space, or is reduced to only two planes at an angle. The materials are chosen especially in order to create reflections and transparencies, enabling the viewer partly to penetrate the sculpture visually and partly to experience the obstruction caused by the mirror that reflects the image.
