Conflating Baroque architecture, Faberge eggs, human orifices, and a luxurious walk-in closet, “The Pavilion” is an unreal meditation on wealth and power. In the work, a meticulously crafted virtual structure continually spawns strange egg-shaped pods. With ominous imagery and sharp, seductive visuals, Monaghan postulates a world permeated by over-powering technology and luxury.
