Stuart Semple has taken up residence at Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London, for the whole of Frieze week, where he will create giant temporary painting on the inside of the lobby windows. The 127m long painting is designed to document the individual experience of Semple’s stay, in the form of a giant glow in the dark Mind Map. To accompany this project, nine original works on paper, created by Semple, are also on display in the hotel, and are available exclusively for purchase from Roberta Moore Contemporary, with a percentage of the sale going to mental health charity Mind.
General Manager Sylvain Ercoli comments, “Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London is very pleased to be commissioning Stuart Semple to create a unique piece of artwork across our hotel windows; they are the ideal place to showcase art due to the prime location of the hotel and surrounding landmarks. We have always wanted to contribute to the local community within a cultural aspect, so a collaboration like this during Frieze week provides us with a timely opportunity.”
