New York-based artist Eric N. Mack has collaborated with Italian fashion house Missoni on a site-specific sculpture exhibited at the international contemporary art exhibition Desert X, taking place in Palm Springs, California from February 9–April 21, 2019. Missoni’s Creative Director, Angela Missoni has personally chosen the precious colourful and patterned fabrics used in Mack’s work.
The sculpture is located at the iconic Southern California car garage, a defunct gas station at the edge of the Salton Sea. The artist has reframed the structure and its relationship to both itself and its surroundings by draping the space with silks, knits and tulles, which have all been stretched with rope and tensioned to form lines in space.
