Un-Veil

Un-Veil

Pop-up shop & exhibition

A 6-week pop-up shop and event space hosting a multitude of events and talks in an empty shop unit. The project was initiated by you&me, who saw the potential in reviving the disused unit, making it into an active public front as part of the the Cadogan Royal Wedding events. you&me joined forces with the milliner Gabriela Ligenza, artist Wojchiech Nowikowski and jewellery designer Melanie Georgacopoulos to open up the space to the public for retail as well as interactive, digital media events and lectures. 

 

you&me transformed the space using an oversized suspended ‘wedding’ veil, decorated with jewel-like antique chandeliers and delicate bare bulbs. The process of installation became an event in itself, as passers by were invited to participate.
