ZIGZAG

Metro Show Art Fair

New York, USA

Zigzag is a temporary installation commissioned by the Art Fair Company for the annual Metro Show. It functions as a threshold between the city and the fair, a spatial passage and a visual first-impression. The installation’s main element is a continuous 100-foot long zigzagging wall, clad in custom graphics that abstractly reference the exhibition’s content. On the floor, matte-black vinyl – cut in the shape of the shadow that the wall would cast if sun-lit – provides a sense of volume. The installation’s faceted panels, the back of which is constructed from bright-red hand-painted canvas, create an intimate guest lounge furnished by a prominent vintage retailer.
