Committee Studio presents: LOVE LOVE LOVE
Please note: this installation is currently under maintenance until further notice
Giant white letters spell out the word ‘Love’ three times in this site-specific artwork by design studio Committee. Commissioned by international design journal Disegno and Wembley Park as part of the inaugural 2018 Xmasbox Christmas celebrations, the text sits against a vibrant golden background that contrasts with the industrial aesthetic of the world-famous stadium nearby.
When viewed from a certain angle, the letters give the impression they are standing upright, casting a shadow behind – to be read as an invitation, a hope, a command, a protest or an obstruction. The work can refer to every form of love, from religious faith to the romantic, from the familial to the civic.
As one walks past, we see the letters form and break apart – a poetic allusion, the designers say, to the idea that love is sometimes hard to find, define and maintain but is also an eternal, essential and ever present concept.
Committee, a design studio and art practice founded by Clare Page and Harry Richardson, will take over the Spanish Steps that connect Wembley Stadium and Arena Square to present LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
Committee creates products, concepts, film and imagery for brands, galleries and institutions around the world, including the London Design Museum, Jerwood Gallery, the V&A, Liberty, and the British Council.
