description

Exhibition catalogue for a pop-up tattoo parlor open during Art Basel Miami Beach as part of Design Miami in 2007. Artists whose tattoo designs were available : Tobias Wong, Josee Lepage, Aric Chen, Kaws, Lawrence Weiner, Juergen Mayer H., Tord Boontje, Yves Béhar, Hella Jongerius, Vito Acconci, 5.5 Designers, Erey and Lenny Rodriguez. Includes one temporary tattoo. "Merging design, art and the body, "As Long as it Lasts..." will open its doors during Art Basel Miami Beach as Design Miami's first-ever pop-up tattoo parlor. For three days only, visitors and passersby will have the opportunity to get a tattoo, inked by a licensed professional, in one of eight specially-commissioned designs created by prominent artists and designers. What does it mean for a body to be 'signed' by an artist? What is the relationship between author and audience, and how far will art and design lovers go? Organized by Tobias Wong, Josee Lepage and Aric Chen, 'As Long as it Lasts...' will be part performance, part cultural barometer, part guest amenity. Like a manicure or Tarot card reading, drop-in are welcomed. One design will be offered as a temporary tattoo." -- publisher's statement.
