Blow Up Hall 50 50 hotel offers a combination of luxury, high tech, the finest design and personal artistic experimentation. Its guests not only experience art but also participate in its creation. The name of the complex was inspired by the 1966 British-Italian cult art film Blowup, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. This is also the name of an electronic project around which Blow Up Hall 50 50 was designed – Blow Up Commission by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, a Mexican-Canadian artist whose work were formerly displayed at the Venice Biennale and at the Tate Modern in London.
An impressive collection of art makes Blow Up Hall 50 50 an extraordinary destination. Its interiors house Vanessa Beecroft’s monumental photograpies, Spencer Tunick’s nude installation from San Sebastian, installation by Piotr Uklański, a sculpture by Sylwester Ambroziak, photographies by Jadwiga Sawicka, Maurycy Gomulicki, Mariko Mori and Patrick Turnebouef. Set in the reception hall of Blow Up 50 50, Sebastian Hempel’s Irrlichter consist of two longitudinal fluorescent lamps which swivel around and project light.
The design of Blow Up Hall 50 50 reaches beyond architecture as it emerges out of guests’ art experience.
