Internationally acclaimed installation artist Vibhor Sogani presents a public art installation at Dubai Design Week from 9th to 14th November 2020 – Nebula
Well known name in design installation, Vibhor Sogani was invited to collaborate with Wilson Associates, a Global architectural interior design firm, and Studio Mark Lighting Consultants – an architectural lighting design practice, to collectively create a Gateway into Dubai Design Week 2020.
The ‘Nebula’ installation by Vibhor Sogani consists of a stage-inspired setting where visitors are invited to walk inside from beneath the structure and find multiple sphere-like, reflective surfaces in the centre that create an overhead kaleidoscope-effect of facial reflections.
With the lighting design by Courtney Mark, at night the space is transformed by light to play with shadows and provide a different interpretation of the kaleidoscope effect while visitors are able to maintain social distancing.
“In a world where we may not constantly be accompanied by another, the NEBULA is a reminder that we do not run solo; instead, we carry within many versions of our own selves —because, we are never just one person. What may have seemed like an onerous nimbus from a distance is, in fact, an imperative reflection of the deeper self,” says Artist Vibhor Sogani.
Vibhor Sogani’s style is experimental and language transformative. Another of his prominent works is ‘Joy’, a 30 feet high public art installation in Dubai, UAE. Commissioned by EMAAR, it is installed at one of the prominent junctions of the upcoming development, Dubai Creek Harbour. Recipient of many honors, he has also been awarded ‘Indian Art Icon of the Year 2014’ in Singapore.
