The Kirlian: an Art Bar by Jeremy Shaw

The Kirlian: an Art Bar by Jeremy Shaw

Art Basel in Basel, June 2012

Absolut gave artist Jeremy Shaw carte blanche to conceptualize a fully operational bar to act as a unique place of conviviality, at Volkshaus No.5, The Gallery, just minutes from the fair. The result was a bar informed in equal parts by Shaw’s deep background in music and his interest in Kirlian photography; an out-moded photographic technique that captures the magnetic field, or presumably, the emotional aura, of both inanimate objects and living things. The Kirlian - space full of hidden potentials, specifically soundtracked for daytime unwinding, evening socializing, and night time dancing.
