The Peep Show Becomes Art

Peep Show Becomes Art

The National Gallery in London has chosen a unique medium — a peep show — in an attempt to portray part of an exhibit featuring scenes from Greek mythology. Turner Prize-winning artist Paul Wallinger has arranged for six women to portray the Goddess Diana at bath as they sit naked in a mocked-up bathroom while the public glimpses them through peep holes. The exhibit is intended to evoke the myth of the hunter Actaeon who stumbled upon Diana at bath and and was hunted for his offense.

The price of admission to view the modern Diana will be somewhat less dear. If fact, it’s free.


Be seeing you.
