LAC, as the host of the main venue in Mayfair Design District, has collaborated with the talented Berlin-based artist Lizz Lunney to bring a unique charm into the facade of the exhibition space in Mayfair.
The highlight of this collaboration is the giant purple cat, Fischbits, which will descend from the sky, illuminating the exterior of our 7-level exhibition venue, symbolising joy and happiness, dispelling negativity from people's hearts and revealing inner beauty.
Fischbits, the brainchild of Lizz's ongoing exploration, aims to seek the concept of things that bring joy. It's like a call to happiness, countering all the negativity in people's hearts right now. Fischbits' purpose is to make the recipients experience the true beauty deep within their souls.
For this exhibition's theme "On Purple: The Purpose of Hue”, Lizz has reimagined Fischbits in shades of purple, presenting it in a fresh light at the London Design Festival.
Lizz Lunney is an artist and writer working in the magical realms of character creation, comics and gamedev. Previous giant character installations include a big purple mountain taken to the forest, a 26ft long worm carried around the streets of Hamburg and a huge laughing wall duck made from duct tape. Lizz uses pen, ink and fabric to explore the unexpected and question the humdrum of daily existence with humour and joy. lizzlunney.com
