Utilizing the Espace Louis Vuitton in Tokyo – the venerable fashion brands second art space, opened in Omotesando earlier this year – Brooklyn based artist Alyson Shotz has installed her latest exhibition, Geometry of Light; an impressive visual display that explores themes of light and time, designed specifically for the space.
The gallery, designed by leading Japanese architect Jun Aoki, is situated on the 7th floor of the Louis Vuitton Tokyo store and comprises three glass walls and a high ceiling allowing for natural sunlight to soak into room – subsequently, the panoramic views of Tokyo are unparalleled and perfectly showcases Shotz’s glass structures that although completely fill the space, are never lost or partially seen because of her use of transparent plastics which reflect and refract the outside light rays.
Louis Vuitton are renowned for their support to young artists and cultural collaborations that extend further than the brands fashion and accessories lines (seen more recently with the Louis Vuitton Young Arts project and REcreative web initiative) and hope that they can interlink fashion, art and beauty within the space which is situated in the most cultural area of Tokyo, providing a place for artists and designers to express themselves. We hope to see more brands following suit.
Geometry of Light will be on show until the end of the year at Louis Vuitton, Omotesando Boulevard, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo – Samantha Fox
