Deconstructed McQueen Bag And Wax, 2013
Andrea Hasler

For her first solo exhibition with the Gusford Gallery, Andrea Hasler has transformed the entire space into a chic, Glittery Boutique, filled with works from her desire series. Through her deconstruction of high-end designer items, hasler’s wax sculptures morph consumeristic ‘must-haves’ into organic, fetishistic objects.
Hasler’s work focuses on constructions of identity and collective desires, and is characterized by a tension between attraction and repulsion. The works in the desire series, in particular, focus on the obsession of projections of affluence and glamor. Reworking designer bags, shoes, and accessories into organ-resemblant sculptures, Hasler’s works engage with the psychological aspects of consumerism, blurring the lines between what you are and what you must have.
Through the transformation of Gusford’s Melrose avenue gallery space into an indulgent, glamorous shop, Hasler’s installation embodies the epitome of luxurious excess, and looks to a dystopic future, where brandedorgans may one day be the ultimate fashion accessory. via designboom.com

Breathing Light, 2013 
James Turrell

Three James Turrell exhibitions will be concurrently on view from coast to coast across the USA this summer. they are being hosted at the Museum Of Fine Arts Houston; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (see designboom’s preview of ‘Aten Reign’ here) and LACMA, Los Angeles, who is presenting the first major retrospective of Turrell in America since 1985. Turrell’s practice began in the mid-1960s when he observed a beam of light emitted from a slide projector while sitting in the darkened hall of an art history lecture at pomona college. It was this moment that provoked him to ask ‘What if light wasn’t the tool that enabled people to see something else, but rather became the thing people look at?’, and so his journey into changing people’s perception of light and space began. via designboom.com

Presented at Salone Satelite during Milan Design Week 2013, japanese designer Junpei Tamaki has created ‘2450’, a collection of chairs that only uses 5mm acrylic sticks for its construction. Although fragile on an individual basis, the form becomes reinforced when built like an architecture structure. Implementing the theme of ‘The Power Of Weakness’, the seating utilizes 2450 meticulously arranged components, measuring just over a kilometer in length when laid end to end. via designboom.com
