Simon Vega’s Studio Residency

Simón Vega joins Soho Beach House Residency once again this past October. Vega created installations with audience participation over the course of three days. The first event was his Sub Tropical Fruit Sculptures where the guests were able to carve and sculpt tropical fruits into ephemeral works.  His next event was the Smoothie Station Challenge where Vega invites participants to bring their own fruits to create smoothie recipes around a simple wooden structure. Last but not least, Vega had participants become live sculptures imitating Twister methodologies using tanning oil and beach towels. This event focused on the connection between the body and traditional sculpture. For more information about Soho Beach House and Simón’s residency visit primaryprojectspace.com.
