Absolut Art Bar ‘Architectures of the Night’

14 Apr 201617 Apr 2016

Architectures of the Night is an Absolut Art Bar by Michele Ormas at Kölner Liste in Cologne, open from 14-17 April.

Ormas’ Art Bar features a 5-metre high ‘Virtual Tower’, which mixes architectural installation, light and projection with acoustic elements, drawing visitors into the heart of a seemingly timeless nocturnal world. Depictions of cities as fragments, which hang, overlap and are draped throughout the space represent the artist’s memories of urban and natural environments, influenced by a range of sources including the Neo-Noir film ‘Dark City’, and the novel ‘Invisible Cities’ by Italo Calvino. An additional theme within the installation is wheat, a key ingredient in Absolut Vodka, which fascinates the artist, and allows for further exploration around fusing elements of urban landscapes and nature.
