THE ART PIECE
Wave, a light installation inspired by Pablo Valbuena's signature Array series, will be sited directly on Miami Beach, outside the context of the art fair. It invites guests to fully immerse themselves in the Shape of Light – a concept that perfectly articulates La Prairie’s brand values of precision, aesthetics and innovation. With this mesmerising kinetic art piece that recalls the light dancing on an ocean wave, the Spanish artist uses light to pay tribute to Miami’s iconic ocean front, casting the sea- and landscape in a new light.
The striking result of La Prairie’s collaboration with Pablo Valbuena will first be unveiled at Art Basel in Miami Beach as part of La Prairie’s continuing partnership with the world’s premier art fair.
“Wave depicts a sculptural volume unfolding over time – the Shape of Light seized in perpetual movement. It uses ephemeral and intangible materials – light and sound – and can be traversed by the observer, immersing them into the shapes cast by the undulating light columns. The work creates a malleable experience of scale: it shifts between object and environment depending on the observer’s position inside, outside, or at the boundary of the installation,” he added.
