Kabin appears as an ambiguous architectural structure that can be accessed internally and also rotated externally by hand.

 

Its form draws on the grammar of the small feature rich buildings like bandstands and seated shelters typically found in British parks. Constructed from wood that has been burnt, its grain has then been painstakingly carved out by hand.

 

In Kabin, Krokatsis exploits the gap between a seemingly utilitarian entity and an object of aesthetic fascination to create a work that holds simultaneously, a sense of belonging and a sense of wonder.
