FERNGULLY BY HAAS BROTHERS

December 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The Bass presents The Haas Brothers’ first solo museum exhibition, Ferngully. The exhibition of new and recent work by the LA-based designers explores the precarity and regenerative possibilities of the natural environment. Ferngully, named after a 1992 animated film of the same title, invites visitors into a utopic setting that exemplifies The Haas Brothers’ return to nature through design.  Blurring the lines between art and design, The Haas Brothers’ body of work frequently subverts the materiality of its media, departing from the functional, and moving towards the exclusively sculptural. Ferngully takes form as an immersive installation comprising diverse elements such as beadwork, ceramics, velvet, and blown glass. Woven tree trunks with copper leaves and blown glass coconuts illuminate biomorphic, sculptural seating elements and velveteen cacti. A padded floor evoking a forest floor, along with subdued lighting further evince a sumptuous, yet fragile environment.

11:30am Optional Brunch at the Plymouth Grille located inside the Plymouth Hotel, 334 21st Street, Miami Beach.

HOSTED BY:  Sydney Carpel and Denise Courshon
