SPLENDOUR. SABINE MARCELIS X MASSIMO DUTTI (2017)
NOV 21 2017
In collaboration with Side Gallery and Massimo Dutti, the Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis realized the installation “Splendour” at the Fashion brands flagship Store in the city center. Sabine Marcelis a designer represented by Side Gallery grew up in New Zealand surrounded by nature. Sensitive to the light of the sky, the ocean and the snow on the mountains, the artist was always inspired the communication of natural elements. Her work is reflective of these beautiful moments, which she tries to capture but on a smaller scale, as objects or installations.
"The artist was always inspired the communication of natural elements"
Splendor was composed of a series of neon sculptures that embodied the designers desire to capture wonderful moments through, light, material and colour. The contrast of the setting and its historic value with the cutting-edge contemporary installation created movement within the pieces as the light sculptures interacted with the surroundings. The installation was just one of three interventions the designer has realized in Spain in collaboration with Side Gallery, the most recent being the creation of five works for the Mies Van de Rhone Pavilion in December 2019.
