Belgian-German artist Carsten Höller is transforming a former 1920s film studio into what he describes as a “schizophrenic” nightclub.
The Prada Double Club Miami will see the club split into two with one space designed as a tropical outdoor garden and the other a subdued space in melancholy colours.
The music between the areas will also be in stark contrast with musicians from south Florida, the Carribean and South America stationed in the outdoor area while the sombre section will revolve around electronic music. Wyclef Jean will perform on the opening night.
Höller said: “I want guests to feel like they are the only element of color in the monochromatic side that has only greys, blacks and whites, as if a foreign element in a black and white movie – and to feel pale in the hyper-polychromatic other side, where the tropics hit a bit too hard,”
The project, his second involving a twin-themed nightclub, will show for three nights at the Art Basel show in Miami and will be accessible by invite-only.
His last split-club project was The Double Club in London that turned a Victorian warehouse into a blend of contemporary art and music.
The event runs from December 5 to 7.
