Videre Licet, "Meltfloor 1", Rug, 2019

$20,300

About

This rug debuted during the "Henzel Studio Collaborations" exhibition at THE NEW. Meltfloor is based upon the Meltform series of glass and metal, light sculptures previously designed by Videre Licet. “Art rugs have been around for quite some time in various forms, and some of the most prominent artists including Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Robert Indiana, Mike Kelley, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Leger, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol have all turned to the media at some point in their oeuvre. However, rather than look back, we’re looking to encapsulate facets of contemporary art and work with a curated group of artists that simultaneously express their ethos within a broad yet defined scope. Having leading contemporary artists collaborate in this capacity makes Henzel Studio Collaborations an unprecedented program, even though the artisan practices remind us that the possibility has always been there.” – Joakim Andreasson (Curator of Henzel Studio Collaborations) Videre Licet (Latin for "to be able to see") is a collaboration between artist/designer Daniele Albright and design curator Stefan Lawrence. Based in Los Angeles, they intersect practices of art and design and describe their work as "conceptual glamour," bridging a wide range of California references from minimalist sculpture to Hollywood glamour to '70s experimentalism. Designed using contemporary technologies but crafted entirely by hand, the collection includes functional pieces as well as sculptural works produced in limited editions. The New York Times has called the collection "daring, glamorous and a touch tongue-in-cheek" while the Wall Street Journal says it "exemplifies the push-me-pull-you tension between minimalism and materiality that defines luxury design".
