Wetterling Gallery is proud to announce a dynamic installation of art in a personalized environment at the Insights section at The Armory Show. The booth is layouted as an exclusive apartment with carefully selected furniture, carpets and lighting by Svenskt Tenn, one of Sweden’s most fashionable and renowned interior design brands.
In this intimate presentation, the artworks are installed as in a private home, allowing the visitors to establish a different view on the works, far from the white cube. The presentation is changing every day, high lightening different artists and artworks from day to day. Altering the works on view generates new relations between, and perspectives on the presented art works. Considering the artists on show are all well-established and represented in numerous public collections and museums, this presentation allows the viewer to find back to a personal approach to each work.
