The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, in partnership with Art Production Fund, is pleased to announce artist-in-residence Eloise Fornieles. In P3 Studio, Fornieles will create an installation mimicking the natural environment using the language of glamour, spectacle and glitz that Las Vegas exudes. The studio will be transformed into a seascape showcasing a wooden boat perched on a wave of pennies, with a constellation of disco balls above it creating a never-ending sky infused with a glittering sea. Guests will be invited to write a hope or fear on paper and place it in the boat, which will then be read by Fornieles and stuffed into the small holes and cracks of the boat.

Eloise Fornieles, born in Winchester, UK, has worked and lived in London since 2004. Her practice is predominantly performance based, focusing on the one-to-one interventions within installations and soundscapes. Her installations create a space for contemplation, while her own emphasis is on physical endurance, providing a backdrop for a more visceral understanding of the body as material with its limitations and capabilities.

Past exhibitions include Their Wonderlands, Midlands Art Centre, Birmingham; On and On, La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Natural Wonders: New Art from London, Babakov Art Projects, Moscow; Fashion in Film Festival, Tate Modern, London; Carrion, Haunch of Venison, Berlin; and The Body is an Ocean, Paradise Row, London, 2011.

The artist-in-residence program at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas represents one component of its larger art program, in which artists create projects that are interactive and participatory, giving guests the opportunity to connect at an authentic and personal level. Developed and curated in partnership with Art Production Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to producing ambitious public art projects, it strives to reach new audiences and expand awareness through contemporary art.
