For all of 2019, Heather Kapplow is working on a project about LUXURY, what it is, why we need it, and what the possibilities are for feeling a sense of luxury in our lives that isn't tied to spending money/exploiting natural resources or other people. Kapplow has been gathering data via surveys (please take a survey!!: http://tiny.cc/luxus!!) and by doing interviews in different cities in the US, EU and beyond.
On September 4th please bring an object with you that is either luxurious to you, or which symbolizes luxury for you. Kapplow will interview you and take a photograph of your object, and this data will be used to shape unique sculptural objects/experiences occurring in Bilbao (Spain) at the end of 2019 that are luxurious but have no monetary value.
This event will occur in the Atelier at ARoS Aarhus Art Museum. Image shown is a luxury item brought to a previous research event.
