The Psycho House Hits Met Museum Rooftop

The Psycho House Hits Met Museum Rooftop

Psycho Barn

This spring, British artist Cornelia Parker will create a site-specific installation atop The Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. The installation will be the fourth in a series of commissions created specifically for the outdoor space.

Psycho Barn

It is a scaled-down version of the two-sided set that served as the Bates family home in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 thriller, “Psycho” — itself a scaled-down version of the stately Victorian in Haverstraw, N.Y., in Edward Hopper’s 1925 painting “House by the Railroad.”

She assembled the 30-foot structure with materials from a dismantled red barn in upstate New York, reusing its wooden slats along with dishevelled window frames and corrugated metal roof tiles.

The Met’s 2016 summer programme also includes the Costume Institute’s Manus x Machina exhibit, which will opens May 5th and explore technology’s impact on fashion.
