INCOGNITO by Curio Art Consultancy and Jaspal Riyait, Rees Street Parkette
Using architectural massing models as the inspiration for the structures, INCOGNITO explores what happens when you make the City’s architectural interventions invisible. Adopting the same camouflaging technology used by warships, the wintery environment renders the installation as truly incognito, shaping the public’s interaction with the piece.
Artist Bio curio is a public art management and design discipline communications consulting practice, founded in 2012 by Justin Ridgeway. Its purpose is to articulate and contribute to our collective narrative through the realization of public art, architecture and design projects of varying scale, media and platform. Since 2007, Justin Ridgeway has worked on large, urban public art projects with such artists as Vito Acconci, James Carpenter, Douglas Coupland, Mark DiSuvero, LAb(au), Geoff McFetridge, Troika, James Turrell and United Visual Artists. For Ice Breakers, Justin collaborated with his wife Jaspal Riyait. Currently residing in Brooklyn New York, Jaspal is the Design Director and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
