BEACH SHOP

Plakookee worked with DC based artist collective NoMüNoMü (Joseph Orzal & Nora Müeller) on their large-scale installation projects GIFT SHOP (Transformer / Washington, DC) and BEACH SHOP (Siren Arts, Asbury Park, NJ). 

Both projects question the boundaries of commerce within cultural institutions. Merging the realms of art, design, craft, conceptuality and entertainment the goal of these projects were to reject all hierarchy and and brought together a large group of artists to work collaboratively. Plakookee assisted NoMüNoMü in designing the space for GIFT SHOP (2016) and contributed an edition of ceramic "sun tan flasks" for BEACH SHOP (2017).
