Ordinary Architecture is set to work on the V&A’s inaugural exhibition at the institute’s Venice Biennale outpost
The V&A’s Applied Arts Pavilion will be located in a restored building close to the Arsenale complex.
For its first exhibition the gallery will host a display on copying put together by Ordinary Architecture.
The practice will work with V&A curator Brendan Cormier and researcher Danielle Thom on the installation which will also include copies commissioned specially for the exhibition.
Ordinary Architecture was set up by Elly Ward and ex-FAT founder Charles Holland after the playful postmodernist practice split in 2013.
One of the practice’s last jobs was the UK’s Venice Biennale exhibition in 2014.
This year the UK’s main space is being curated by writers Shumi Bose, Jack Self and architect Finn Williams and is entitled Home Economics.
