Lounge Corp. at Satellite Art Show

December 1 to December 5
Artists are curated into the carpet installation, invited to create work inspired by objects that could be found in a hotel room, transforming the room into a collaborative indoor sculpture park.
Curated by Ragnheidur Karadottir and Kaja 'Cxzy' Andersen
 
Lounge Corp. is a curatorial team made up of artists Ragnheidur Karadottir and Kaja 'Cxzy' Andersen. Their agenda is to make site specific exhibitions in non traditional spaces. Lounge Corp. creates a dialogue with the inherent aesthetics of each space they approach, seamlessly shifting between installation and ornamentation, between a reaction and an echo.
 
For Satellite Art Show, Lounge Corp. is creating a site specific installation in dialogue with the unique characteristics of the Parisian, and the general aesthetic of the Miami Beach tourist scene­ which is both kitsch and glamorous.
 
To directly address the attributes of the Parisian and the dimensions of the hotel room, Lounge Corp. is focusing on the use of carpet, found throughout the Parisian and in many other sea­side motels. Soft and warm yet shabby and frayed, the carpet carries the history of each guest, despite the repetitive and incessant attempts of the hotel’s vacuum cleaner to erase it.
