Interview with architect Marcio Kogan
We meet Mario Kogan and his MK27 team at Venice Biennale, where he represents Brazil with video installation “Peep”, directed by Lea Van Steen. A great black box provided with holes through which to spy on the lives of a family and the house servants living in Villa V4, one of the latest works designed by the studio. With a non-academic and sarcastic gaze, Kogan interprets the theme of shared spaces proposed this year by the Director of the Biennale David Chipperfield. Instead of showing the beauty of his designs, the architect from São Paulo preferred to use them as a theatre with which to narrate the contradictions of contemporary Brazeil in a sharp and ironic way.
