An art collection to be installed in Le Yacht Club, an exclusive venue on the waterfront in Beirut designed by American architect Steven Holl. The curatorial direction of the project gave free reign to the artists, thus insisting that there will be no constraints on the issues they wished to tackle.
The artworks were selected for their critical value reflecting a diversity of media like installation, photography, painting, sculptural and neon works. This was a three-year-long conversation between interior designers, artists, curators and the client. The team studied the architectural specificities of the site, its openings, perspectives and views and, curated the body of works in parallel to its architectural conception. This approach strove to highlight its spatial quality by relating it to the activity and the mood of the various spaces, immersing the viewer in an intriguing and daring atmosphere, but also to make the collection powerful enough regardless of the context it’s in.
