Aglow, the immersive art installation by Liz West
Here the third and last step of an immersive and energizing art installation, “Aglow” that delighted and entertained during MDW19, by Liz West, an internationally acclaimed artist based in UK. The work consisted of one hundred and sixty-nine 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 glow as if charged with electricity. These ‘live’ rims and choice of components embody West’s interest in the relationship between colour and light and her obsession with materials that enhance the viewers perception of the work. Nemozena, the luxury and lifestyle womenswear brand inspired by female empowerment, partners with the artist Liz West for this project, aimed to present to the public an immersive and energizing art installation that promises to delight and entertain. This striking piece of art has fascinated crowds at Musée Nissim de Camondo in Paris, during Paris Fashion Week in September 2018 and in Dubai Design District where it was considered one of the highlights of the last edition of Dubai Design Week. The final step was in April 2019, for the ultimate event taking place in Milan during the world famous Milano Design Week, from April 8th till 14th, 2019, in the historical impressive location of Piazza Belgioioso.
