Breaking Bad in the art world: installation by Black Acid Co-op

It’s funny how popular TV shows can shed a new light on art. A good example is the Black Acid Co-op installation by two American artists, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe. It’s their third collaborative project, a large-scale installation of several rooms including a meth lab, all commissioned by Deitch projects.

To enter the installation, the visitor has to climb through a big hole in the wall and as soon as he/she is inside the hidden world, abandonment and decay opens up. The exhibition gives the “average” citizen the possibility to experience a sub-culture he is probably surrounded by every day without noticing and without even imagining that his neighbour might have a drug lab next door.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
