Luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet has teamed up with the Galerie Perrotin to present a new artwork at Art Basel Miami. The manufacture and the contemporary art gallery will unveil “Curiosity”, a new work by French artist duo Kolkoz.
“Curiosity” will take the form of a chalet floating in front of the Miami Marine Stadium, a floating stage which now stands unused. The snowy chalet will be perched on top of an “iceberg” in the midst of Miami’s sun and sand. Benjamin Moreau and Samuel Boutruche, who make up Kolkoz, frequently create installations that explore the interchange between the real and the virtual realms. Last year, their “Luna Park” recreated the lunar landing site of Apollo 11 in the form of a live football pitch on Miami Beach.
The installation will host Audemars Piguet events throughout Art Basel week. The brand will also have a booth in the Collectors’ Lounge, which will feature a retrospective on the Royal Oak and a showcase of works by acclaimed British photographer Dan Holdsworth.
