To mark the kick-off to the Fall 2018 art season, we installed a new acquisition in our studio!
Everything about this acquisition points to Suzanne Lovell Inc. It is a fine art woven tapestry, many of which we have explored over the years, always marveling at the incredible process and talent needed to create such a creation.
This tapestry is an image of Looshaus in Vienna, built by Adolf Loos in 1909. It is regarded as one of the central buildings of Viennese Modernism, the precursor to Modern architecture & design, functional and without ornament.
The artist had the photograph Michalerplatz by Guy L’Heureux, taken at Le Grand Balcon at La Biennale de Montréal in 2016, scanned at 8 million pixels per inch.
Bool then inserted the couture fashion mannequin into the architecture, and exaggerated that expression by adding crewel embroidery to the whitest parts of the image. The tapestry was expertly woven by Flanders Tapestries BVBA in Wielsbeke, Belgium.
The result is a spectacular example of Couture Fashion meets Modern Architecture. We acquired this piece from the Galerie Kadel Willborn out of Düsseldorf, Germany. Another tapestry of the edition of 2 + 1 AP is in the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
This piece hangs at the entrance to our studio as an expression of what we aim to accomplish everyday, which is fine modern architectural interiors infused with couture interior fashion.
We are thrilled to include this masterful tapestry in our collection. Be sure to check back and follow us on Instagram for more exciting news in the coming weeks!
