Based in Vancouver and Berlin, Omer Arbel explores the intrinsic mechanical, physical, and chemical qualities of materials and the treatment of light as a medium. Arbel’s interdisciplinary practice spans architecture, industrial design, materials research, sculpture, and high craft manufacturing. His work has been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Spazio Rossana Orlandi, and the Monte Clark Gallery, among others.
During this special presentation, Arbel will discuss his studio practice and the ways in which his work has evolved into different trajectories. Projects include recent exhibitions such as Omer Arbel: 44, a light installation currently on view at the Barbican in London, his architectural practice, and his ongoing role as creative director of Bocci.
Founded in 2005 under the creative directorship of Arbel, Bocci is a design and manufacturing company known for sculptural lighting and large scale light installations.
