We are delighted to announce that gallery artist Maisie Broadhead has won a prize with Brighton’s iconic building, the Royal Pavillion to create an installation in the majestic Music Room. Titled ‘Peepers’, visitor’s will feel like tiny figures in a decadent doll’s house, as a series of photographic light boxes project giant faces peering through the windows.

Maisie plays with a multitude of ideas including the notion of ‘palace outsiders’ versus ‘palace insiders’; and our voyeuristic fascination with peering in at other people’s lives and homes – especially those of celebrities and royals. The work also looks at scale and the history of the architecture of the Pavilion and the lives of its famous inhabitants.

The installation will be unveiled on 25 October 2014 and will be open to the public until March 2015.
