Elevation 1049 was the amazing creation from the artist Doug Aitken, who designed this semi-permanent structure, over the most amazing landscape ever. It was officially opened to the public on February 2019, where there will be available exhibitions with contemporary art, performances and installations. Today, Wall Mirrors unveils this fantastic mirrored structure and its features.
It’s on Gstaad, Switzerland, right on the mountains, that you can find the amazing Elevation 1049. A work from the very well known Doug Aitken, this astonishing structure features a mirrored house that hosts amazing contemporary art, performances and installations by los angeles based artists. This is the perfect landscape to absorb all the art you can, while enjoying the most amazing view.
It was in a response to this year’s theme, which was frequencies, that Doug Aitken decided to cut, bend and divide light waves, through the use of the surface as clad in mirrors apart from the floor. The frequency of light is manifested through the contact between the snowy landscape and the own structure. This is an original and innovative to reinvent art and design through these amazing elements.
This Doug Aitken’s interior structure is conceptualized on a kaleidoscope, that every visitor can walk through, giving the purpose of a sensorial experience. From the authentic snowy landscape, to this dynamic setting on the inside, every visitor will get a subjective and out-of-body experience when in connection with the installation.
Elevation 1049: frequencies is proudly curated by Neville Wakefield and Olympia Scarry, sponsored by Moncler, produced by the Luma Foundation, in collaboration with the Store x Vinyl Factory. During this semi-permanent structure you can see the work of Doug Aitken, Nina Beier, Naama Tsabar, Isabel Lewis and many more.
As you can see, during this season, you’ll get a large spectrum of international visual and performing artists that are here to breakthrough the art form in many incredible ways. There are many artistry styles that you can enjoy and absorb in these exhibitions. If you happen to have the privilege to admire these exhibitions, make sure to stop by Elevation 1049.
