Though we weren’t able to attend Vivid this year, Surry Hills’ The Clock Hotel are putting on their luminous art exhibition in partnership with Bombay Sapphire, hosting the alluring “RE-CLAIMED”. Prepare for an an enigmatic light and sound experience created by Sydney artist Sam Whiteside and design-driven creative studio Babekuh.
The Clock Hotel will, temporarily, become a Gin Garden with live cinematic sound performances every Thursday night with Sydney-based producer/composer Patrick Santamaria and Sam Whiteside. Sip on some exclusive limited edition cocktails handpicked by ACME’s Ed Loveday and enjoy the audio-visual atmosphere with cocktail masterclasses available, held by Bombay Brand Ambassador, Loy Cotada.
Sam Whiteside and Babekuh talk us through the inspiration behind their RE-CLAIMED installation:
“The organised systems that humans create have an inherently finite life-span, which inevitably give way to the apparent chaos of nature when left unattended. ‘RE-CLAIMED’ is an observation of urban decay and the eerily beautiful tension between man and nature. The piece centres around a monolithic lighting sculpture which will be programmatically responsive to an accompanying score and sound design – giving the piece an ever-evolving, performative aspect.”
The installation is now on and will run up until Sunday, November 15. For more information head on over to The Clock Hotel
