Something for the weekend

If you feel like engaging in a little culture this weekend, take a trip to see Swiss artist Christoph Büchel’s epic, sprawling exhibition at Hauser & Wirth gallery’s East End branch, Coppermill. Situated just off Brick Lane, Büchel has merged the gallery seamlessly with its surroundings, turning the entire space into a down-at-heel hotel/cheap electronics shop, complete with a tacky sign and shop front on the outside of the gallery.
Moving inside, the illusion continues as a staircase leads into the hotel itself, a rabbit warren of rooms that are disturbingly stuffed with beds, including narrow mattresses in the kitchen and bathroom. The attention to detail is obsessive, with drawers, desks and beds littered with personal possessions while half-eaten food and overflowing ashtrays suggest a very quick getaway by any inhabitants.
