With two unique approaches, Mitra Fabian and Kathy Aoki plan to create immersive installations for the stARTup Art Fair Los Angeles. Whether it’s the compulsive production and disposal of material goods or the obsessive consumption of pop culture, both artists create worlds that are transcendent and absurd.
Fabian is a sculptor and installation artist working with atypical materials such as tape, glue, various office, technological, and scientific products. As she builds with these materials, she deconstructs them or alters them in such a way that they are not immediately recognizable. The reconstruction is in some way determined by what the material is capable of doing, but not meant to do. She will use these kinds of materials to fabricate sublime environments. Her manipulations result in constructions that seem to breathe and grow before your very eyes. The installations will be responsive to the space and architecture of the hotel room therefore transforming the site.
