Liz West’s new installation, Aglow, is an ambitious outdoor work made entirely from luminous fluorescent acrylic bowls.
Launching at the Musée Nissim de Camondo for Paris Fashion Week, Aglow consists of 169 hemispherical, fluorescent, coloured acrylic bowls arranged on the ground in a hexagon shape. The edges of these multiple unplugged fluorescent bowls, in six neon colours, will glow - as if charged with electricity.
Liz often explores the relationship between colour and light in her work, utilising geometry and repetition to create large scale and impactful installations.
“The acrylic bowls offer a highly reflective concave surface, enabling spectators the opportunity to see their surroundings in a new, fluorescent tinted, light. The individual bowls also serve as rain catchers, adding an extra dimension to the work and another reflective surface in which to observe the surroundings of the exquisite Musée Nissim de Camondo courtyard in central Paris” says Liz.
Aglow been created in partnership with luxury clothing brand Nemozena and will tour Dubai and Milan following Paris Fashion Week. Visit Liz West’s website for further details.
