Sedition has partnered with Edition Hotels for the opening of The London Edition Hotel located in London’s Fitzrovia. In celebration of the opening on September 12th, British artist Mat Collishaw was commissioned by Edition Hotels to create an exclusive digital limited edition available only on Sedition.
Prosopopoeia is a stunning video work that represents an illuminated diamond slowly rotating before a black background. Within the diamond are reflections of flowers – many of them Collishaw’s beloved orchids – that glitter and break up into prisms. The flowers catch fire, burn up, drown in luscious leafy green only to reappear in another rotation of the precious stone.
The work is available exclusively for friends of The London Edition. Prosopopoeia is currently not for sale but you can view and enjoy this stunning piece on the Sedition website or add it to your Wish List to receive the latest updates about the work.Tags: Edition Hotels, Fitzrovia, mat collishaw, Prosopopoeia, The London Edition
