Kader Attia is known for using mirrors or reflective surfaces often, attempting to divert the gaze of the onlooker onto him or herself. In Childhood, Attia places a bubblegum-pink slide amidst broken mirrors and tiles. The nightmarish installation recalls a communal shower room which becomes more and more threatening as we discover the leather straps placed close to the clogged drains, the broken toy doll leaned against a wall, and the knives sticking out from the smooth surface near the bottom of the slide.
