An interactive exhibition at Melbourne’s ACCA used Desso carpet tiles like they’d never been seen before.
March 8th, 2012
Swiss contemporary artist Pipilotti Rist recently turned Melbourne’s Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) into a magical landscape of colour, light and texture with I Packed the Postcard in my Suitcase, Rist’s first exhibition in Australia.
Rist, regarded as one of the top ten contemporary artists in the world, used layers upon layers of Desso carpet tiles to create platforms for visitors to lie back on as they experienced kaleidoscopes of light and colour projected onto the ceiling above.
Exploring how interior spaces can be made to come alive, Rist’s display demonstrated the interaction between light and colour and how the walls, ceilings and floor can all become part of the design process.
Desso products, with their sustainable credentials, proved the perfect materials for Rist’s organic and environmentally-focused artworks, redefining the ACCA interior in a beautiful and unexpected way.
Desso products are available in Australasia from Gibbon Group.
