Dries Van Noten is honored to announce his invitation to BOND, an exhibition by SIZED at The Little House, 451 N. La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles from April 29 through June 10, 2023. BOND celebrates the dialogue between objects and space. Inspired by the Japanese art of Ikebana, this exhibition explores the tradition of arrangement and the art of placement. SIZED SELECTS is a monthly curation of art and design objects by SIZED, featuring emerging and established artists, designers, and dealers from around the world. Each physical exhibition is accompanied by an online launch. For BOND, SIZED Founder and Creative Director, Alexander May, curated a selection from a range of collaborators to create unique arrangements. In this exhibition, each site-specific BOND represents a harmony between the natural and the artificial, showcasing the contrasting pairings of wood and stone, silver and flower, sculpture and vessel. The exhibition's neutral environment, with its lack of color and form, enhances the beauty of each object and accentuates its placement in space. This approach underscores May's interest in the connectivity that emerges from arranging flowers with complementary design objects. With BOND, SIZED SELECTS invites you to explore the harmony in placement. COLLABORATORS INCLUDE: Sophia Moreno-Bunge Aso Rando Dana Arbib Leena Similu Julia Thompson Rich Aybar Ombia Studio Claudia Girbau James Cherry Nick Poe Disciplina Studio Shoshi Watanabe Diego VillaRreal Vagujhelyi Bruises Gallery Ian Collings Among others.
