agaric mushrooms, moving beds, a ceiling-mounted timepiece dropping over one million pills and an entrance and exit via a giant slide. This isn’t a some new kids paradise playground but the new exhibition from Belgian artist Carsten Höller.

Taking place at The South Bank Centre ‘Decision’ is planned to open in June, and is where exhibition goers will be met with one or two choices to make, which will determined where they go whilst making their way through the gallery space. Gaining entry is via a giant slide that will take you from the gallery’s pyramid ceiling to ground level. And these pills are able to be consumed and their ‘unknown effects’ be played out which are rumoured to be somewhere between delight and madness. It sounds like a very surreal and cerebral experience is awaiting…and with the slide, well thats going to be fun isn’t it.
