Crown Fine Art is proud to be selected as a trusted partner in inspecting and assembling the exhibits. From sweaters to color-hunting swatches, from JINS skin color glasses to Enoshima railway, the professional team demonstrated utmost dedication in managing various art mediums.
The highlight of the exhibition was Fujiwara's latest artwork “Garbage Turned Yarn – Grassland Sweater, Urban Sweater”. Eight sweaters were created from the yarn spun from dropped hairs of yaks, sheep, goats from plains of Mongolia and debris from streets of New York and Tokyo. The delicate textile had to be handled with extreme care. Crown Fine Art team prudently positioned the sweaters inside the display cabinet with magnets.
Crown Fine Art completed the installation on time without any difficulty and fully met the client's requirements – our team was very pleased to play a part. We look forward to our next collaboration with HKDI.
