Welcome to “Momentary Pause,” an exclusive exhibition showcased as part of Frieze Los Angeles 2022. Set within the captivating Casa Perfect LA, this exhibition is an exploration of the symbiosis between natural and human-made beauty within the iconic Trousdale Estates home, originally designed by Raul F. Garduno in 1971.
In this sanctuary of “Momentary Pause,” the exhibition goes beyond showcasing art; it creates an immersive experience that transcends the boundaries of time and space. As visitors engage with these carefully selected objects, they are invited to surrender to the power of stillness and immerse themselves in the depths of their own thoughts.
Within this curated collection, the artworks offer a range of experiences, each with its own captivating allure. Some pieces beckon with expansiveness, drawing the viewer into vast and boundless realms. Others unravel intricate details, inviting close inspection and revealing hidden layers of meaning. Illusions come to life, challenging perception and sparking curiosity. Textures unfold under fingertips, evoking a tactile connection that resonates within.
Every artwork possesses a distinct quality, a magnetic force that guides the eye towards a focal point of meditation. In this contemplative space, viewers are encouraged to pause, to embrace the stillness, and to explore the introspective pathways that unfold within.
