Absolut Lydmar: Art Collection- 11.01.09

absolutlydmar0.jpg As you’ve seen, i love the Lydmar Hotel ~ i’m so happy i had a chance to stay there before it got completely transformed into an Absolut Art Collection haven the day after, so i could appreciate the contrast to what the space was normally like.

The bottle rack of Dan Wolgers… i really just adore how beautifully it cast shadows on the walls of the room…





The work of Douglas Gordon… drenching the canvas for days paint stroke by paint stroke of absolut…

Hung Tung-Lu’s large piece left people wandering in and leaning side to side to get the sense of movement…

here’s the video to show you how the lenticular display looked as you moved across the room…

David Shrigley’s piece hung awkwardly high on the wall… so no that angle isn’t just because i’m short!

And of course, i had to check out the MASSIVE bathroom in this suite… bathtub + shower next to it… leather bench and full table in there as well… the bathroom was in the shape of a tetris L…
