Room 503 | 505
Created by BIEN
A fiction of space created by “walls”
Not recommended for guests with small children.
This room is made by randomly constructing and arranging walls of various materials and patterns.
The artist BIEN focused on the process in which walls are constructed. In the early phases of building BnA_WALL Hotel, this room you sit in was subdivided from a large empty floor to create smaller private rooms by constructing walls. BIEN saw these rooms as a kind of fiction created by “walls” that we construct.
Various types of walls line the room like a collage, and its veneer surfaces are carved out revealing the bare substrate; exposing the fictional nature of this space.
On the other hand, the furnishings are a collection of hand selected pieces resembling an old motel creating a strange sense of unity.
What will you experience in this room reminiscent of an old theater set?
