Urban Camouflage liven up the living death that is Ikea
A trip to Ikea is rarely a stimulating experience – it’s akin to wandering around a chilling futureworld filled with inoffensive smooth-edged furniture everywhere you look. You can only tell that freedom is imminent when the smell of meatballs starts getting stronger.
Over in Germany, some performance art types called Urban Camouflage have taken to their local Ikea before hiding themselves in costumes made from some of the stuff therein. It’s tremendous.
The shadowy group say they’re trying to deal with “the question how to camouflage oneself and one’s identity in the urban space.” We’d say they’re just arsing about but it’s a fine line really innit?
