LIZWORKS in collaboration with HUGO BOSS has commissioned the artist BETH CAMPBELL to conceptualize a daring and unexpected installation for their Meatpacking store windows.
Beth Campbell, Screens (2014)
This work concerns boundaries: the delineation between the physical and the optical, the opaque and the transparent, the simultaneous acts of concealing and revealing. The large sculptural planes function as both a screen and a window that both obscure and highlight the surrounding architecture and the store. In this coincident gesture both the artwork and the store’s design elements are melded in an alluring tapestry of inter-reliance that amplifies the visual resonance of all the elements.
