citizenM commissioned London-based artist Emily Forgot to debut her next artwork in the heart of Shoreditch during the London Design Festival 2019. The artwork entitled Never Lost is a colourful and tactile maze – a study of the boundaries between real, remembered and imagined spaces.
Emily’s work spans art, design and illustration. Using her recognisably playful and graphic visual language, she explores her passion for interior spaces, architecture and colour.
Inspired by the likes of Xavier Corbero’s Labyrinth house, the Escher-like constructions of Ricardo Bofill, the monuments of Jantar Mantar in India, and the Postmodern creations of Richard England, the installation translates Emily’s typically two-dimensional works into a 3D explorable space. The viewers will wander through, immersing themselves in a fantastical world of false depths, tactile materials, and optical and physical illusions.
The installation will be located at the entrance to citizenM Shoreditch.
