SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ„¢ Presents
Artist Christopher Labzdaâ€™s â€œWishing Wellâ€ at PULSE Miami
Saturday, December 5th at the Miami Ice Palace, 1400 North Miami Avenue
SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ„¢ is proud to announce its electrifying alliance with artist Christopher Labzda, who will create a â€œWishing Wellâ€ sculpture constructed of Perrier bottles to be unveiled at PULSE Miami on Saturday December 5th, 2009.
PULSE Miami attendees can toss their loose change into the well, which is expected to stand between four and five feet in diameter and approximately three feet tall. The entire structure will be strung with tiny fairy lights, creating a mosaic of glowing Perrier bottles designed to grant wishes as they light up the night.
A visual celebration of SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ€™sâ„¢ commitment to supporting emerging artists and pop culture phenomena, Christopher Labzdaâ€™s SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ„¢ Wishing Well will no doubt delight spectators, both mentally and visually.
Rising New York City artist Christopher Labzda will be constructing the SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ„¢ structure live throughout the day on Saturday, December 5th. Labzda employs a whimsical archaeology of found objects to document the creative process and the people involved. He often appears in the works, inconspicuously slipping between the role of voyeur, subject and creator, while conjuring up futile notions of time and faith in relation to functional objects. At dusk, the completed Wishing Well sculpture will be illuminated and its magical wish-granting will commence!
Entering its fifth season, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair takes place at Miamiâ€™s Ice Palace and runs concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach – from Thursday, December 3rd through Sunday December 6th. PULSE develops original cultural programming with a series of large-scale installations, its PULSE Play Video Lounge, the PULSE Performance event series and the recently launched PULSE Profiles series of artists and curators talks.
In the spirit of Perrier’s Â® collaborations with iconic artists including Andy Warhol in the 80’s, SociÃ©tÃ© Perrierâ„¢ the source for nightlife, whose identity was created by contemporary artist Scott Campbell, continues the brand’s decades of celebrating artistic expression by supporting PULSE Miami.
