Shahla Friberg: Redirection, a new exhibition at TL

SHAHLA FRIBERG: REDIRECTION
4 SEPTEMBER – 30 OCTOBER 2020
at Thomas Lavin, Pacific Design Center

Edward Cella Art & Architecture presents Shahla Friberg: Redirection, a solo exhibition of gleaming and reflective glass sculptures of Shahla Friberg radiate like beacons drawing us in to experience new realities. Featuring both free standing and wall mounted forms of mirrored and stained glass; the unique hand-built construction engages viewers with surprising vistas and visceral experiences of color and light. The sparkling works ultimately alter our expectations and, by extension, perception itself.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is a massive wall installation of mirrored glass entitled, Glissando. Taken from the musical term that describes the continuous glide or sweep from one pitch to another; Friberg’s selection of the title underscores her work’s essential relationship with movement. Although static, each sculpture offers a kinetic, immersive experience mediated by the viewer’s movement and interactions. Activated and becoming further alive with the daily and seasonal shifts of sunlight reflected in their prism like surfaces; Friberg engages with fundamentals of time, space, and dimension.

February ‘Collingo’ Calendar from Tibor

February is Persimmon.

Shown here: Raw Coral Persimmon and Buckingham Flame

Our friends at Tibor are sending out monthly inspo based on ‘Collingo’, Tibor Reich’s unique color language created in 1956.

Sixty years later, Tibor still uses this system in their design studio when dealing with color.

The color spectrum, derived from the earth to the sun, is divided into tonal color groups. It’s Tibor’s way of organising colors.

Tibor Reich however, used it for every day life, in his house, on his folders, filing cabinets, telephones, fabric ranges and diaries – a true pioneer!
