The animal-art installation coming soon to a window near you
She’s collaborating with upcoming artists by exhibiting their work in store and integrating it into window designs – and May sees giant wire animals by Milanese sculptor Benedetta Mori Ubaldini stomp into the frame.
At each of Farhi’s 7 London stores, mannequins will be set in grassy, dreamlike scenes next to unlikely combinations of animals including chimps, a giant bunny, donkeys and a giraffe.
Mori Ubaldini creates her pieces from flat chicken wire, which she manipulates by hand to give a seamless appearance with no internal structure.
And once you’ve had splurged on a little something from Nicole Farhi’s bright, breezy summer collection, you can treat yourself to a work of art as well – the sculptures will be up for sale when the ‘zoo’ closes in mid June.
