Artist Meets Artisan at Cartier

Exclusively at Cartier Hudson Yards, Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes envisioned and designed an installation composed of elements in suspension and decorative motifs. Made up of 15 strands, Aquarium is a richly ornamented mobile of monumental dimensions inspired by the patterns and colors of her paintings and collages. Rosettes, floral and abstract ornaments, geometric shapes, rhythmic motifs and arabesques are combined with unexpected materials, creating a fantastical, theatrical work that is refined and surprising.
