Natalie Guy’s installation 'Pool Party' extends her series of inquisitions into the tailings of modernist architecture, and design more broadly. Though much modernist architecture has been assailed by the disruptive urges of post-modernity, modernism, like painting, persists à la Mark Twain whose famous quote ”rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated” signaled the imagined, even hoped for, demise of vital and enduring entities.

Fortunately, magnificent examples of Le Corbusier not only survive, but reveal their omnipotence in the face of abandonment and mis-understanding. Natalie Guy’s time in Chandigarh allowed her to immerse herself, not only in a building of Corbusier, but rather in an entire civic complex.
