New York, NY
“Love Me and Leave Me”, inspired by Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s “The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant”, was Architecture at Large’s contribution to Barney’s “Roomscapes of the Imagination”. The story – a sadomasochistic love affair – is told in three tableaux across the corner windows of the Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship store. The environments range from a geometric, orderly, optically buzzing pattern composed of tape to a mossy landscape ending in shattered reflective mirrors. The windows incorporate furniture from the Rafael de Cárdenas collection for Johnson Trading Gallery as well as accessories by Baccarat.
