Focusing on the unfurnished interior of contemporary housing, the exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion is entitled ‘Svizzera 240: House Tour’. Presented by Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the piece celebrates a very particular form of architectural representation - the ‘house tour’ - and the special take on a residential interior that this creates. White walls, skirting board, wood or tile flooring and off-the-shelf components and fittings, all feature in the installation, in a ’labyrinthine sequence of interior perspectives’.
