Sight Unseen: Saturday Selects – Week of May 4, 2020

This week: Schloss Hollenegg’s new exhibition launches in 3-D, Lex Pott makes moves from candles to soap-making, and a beloved New York photographer launches in-demand jigsaw puzzles.

Silver linings everhwere with this pandemic – it made it impossible for people to visit Schloss Hollenegg’s summer exhibition, but inspired curator Alice Liechtenstein to take the exhibit to the people, so that those of us who wouldn’t have been able to fit in a trip to her castle outside Vienna can now do so virtually. The show, Walden, “opens” today via Instagram Live talks and 3-D tours, showcasing works developed on-site by Charlap Hyman & Herrero (who made the hand-painted vine wallpaper shown above in collaboration with Calico)…

The Overgrow Collection in the colorway Alice is shown above & currently installed at Schloss Hollenegg.
