Below Stairs was the inaugural exhibition in the newly reopened Georgian kitchens of Sir John Soane's Museum. Coinciding with the London Design Festival 2016, the exhibition commissioned five artworks that responded, contrasted, or complimented the space.
AVM Curiosities' contribution was a series of tactile 'Scent Chambers' placed alongside the kitchen's antique stove. When interacted with, these chambers released aromas which evoked the lost memories of Georgian kitchens, transporting the viewer back in time to the bustling environment of the 18th century kitchen, with a hint of today’s gastronomic fantasies.
