34 Travelling, Milan, 2024 Installation

Installation

Complete

Annabel Karim Kassar, the renowned French-Lebanese architect and designer, is set to unveil her latest creation, Travelling, which will take up residence in Milan this Spring for Salone del Mobile from 15th – 28th April 2024. The sensory installation defies conventional notions of architecture, inviting visitors to journey through seven distinct human experiences uniting the sensual with the spiritual.

Inspired by the belief that buildings are not mere structures but instead transcendent pathways for exploration infused with light, colour and emotion; Travelling courts visitors on a cinematic voyage of self-discovery where each visitor will find their own destination.

The installation takes shape as a black Bauhaus structure adorned with a translucent stained-glass wall resembling medieval glass storyboards, showcasing fifty evocative images of human emotions and moments of life handpainted by Kassar, enhancing the sense of mystery and exploration. The sketched figures appear to dance across the white floor of the installation, casting an illuminating spectacle that shape shifts throughout the day as the shade and shadows change.

Crafted from steel tubing and timber, and cocooned by a burnished copper aluminum roof, the structure hosts an organic timber interior that alludes to a mysterious human intervention in time and space. Travelling’s seven rooms offer a unique thematic experience as visitors traverse corridors and realms of reflection, transgression, meditation and more, immersed in Kassar’s signature blend of artistry.

Travelling will house a dedicated space for creativity, where Kassar will be hosting live painting during select hours, reminiscent of Le Mystère Picasso, the remarkable documentary film made by French director, Henri-Georges Clouzot, which features stop-action and time-lapse photography to capture Picasso at work.

“The theme of the 2024 Interni salon is “cross vision”… Here I will be experimenting for the first time with crossing performance and installation as Travelling will host a studio space where visitors can come and watch me paint. These paintings will be added to the installation throughout the week, making it living art – crossing the boundary between finished architecture and lived experience.”
