EXHIBITION/PERFUME LAUNCH:

 

Sarah Baker Perfumes
THE INSTITUTE FOR ART AND OLFACTION, LA

 

Opening Reception: 

Saturday, April 1st, 2017
7-9 pm at the Institute for Art and Olfaction
932 Chung King Road, Los Angeles, CA  90012

 

01 April - 28 April 2017

 

On April 1, 2017, London-based artist Sarah Baker presents her new fragrance collection, Sarah Baker Perfumes, at The Institute for Art and Olfaction in Los Angeles.

 

Sarah Baker Perfumes will transform the IAO gallery and storefront into an escapade for the senses; a place where visitors will be swept away into a world of decadence and desire.

 

Each scent of the Sarah Baker Perfumes line is inspired by classic luxury fabric motifs found in high-fashion labels, therefore conjuring glamorous sceneries. Leopard, Greek Keys, Lace, and Tartan each evoke a different fantasy experience: while one will take you on a wild chauffeur night uptown, downtown and across the city, another will recall a blazing open fire in a Highlands pub.

 

No stranger to the worlds of fashion and glamour, Baker’s artwork explores celebrity, advertising and the marketing of luxury brands, and has taken form in works including celebrity style self-portraiture, daytime and prime time television soap operas, and a live telenovella performed at the National Theatre Studio, London.

 

The concept of producing a perfume line stemmed from a larger fictional narrative that Baker has constructed, first taking form in Impirioso, a 30-minute episode about a woman brought down by her obsession with luxury branding. In keeping with the depth and diversity of her work, Baker has told this story through the film, a stage play, photographs, and these exclusive artisanal fragrances.

 

The scents have been crafted by independent perfumers Ashley Eden Kessler (Studio Sentir, Los Angeles) and Sarah McCartney (4160 Tuesdays, London).

 

At the IAO, Baker will exhibit the scents along with photographic displays and windows.
