About the project

"'Louis Lovis (2021)' is a sculpture making direct reference to the Tricolore French flag, a playful "portrait" of the celebrated French luggage maker Louis Vuitton. I have stacked three equal-sized rectangular stainless steel boxes on top of each other in recognition of Louis's invention of the flat-topped trunk in 1858. The mirror surface of the middle box creates the illusion that the red 'trunk' on top defies gravity. The sculpture poses the question, if the seemingly impossible were possible, what's the future? The playful title, Louis Lovis, provides the answer."
