“We cross the threshold of this landscape inspired by the idea of infinite divisions in half, a curious wonderland that comes to life in a deconstructed amusement park, with real rides that spin in slow motion and live music to dance the night away: a quest fun in style!”— Baldo Hauser

Prada Mode presents the third edition of The Double Club, a project by Carsten Höller created in collaboration with Luna Luna which will be held on 7 and 8 March 2024 at the Luna Luna Studio in Los Angeles, California.

The Double Club Los Angeles is immersed in a site-specific installation based on some of the most recurring themes of Carsten Höller’s artistic practice: the principle of division and the fun machine within a carnival aesthetic. Starting from a single surface and applying the mathematical rule of division, the artist halves the physical size of the work and doubles its height, creating nine unique spaces with which guests can interact. This edition of The Double Club includes two days of musical programming by Carsten Höller and Drake. The installation will subsequently be open to the public on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March 2024.

The Double Club Los Angeles allows Höller to continue investigating the concept of duplicity, transforming a large warehouse in the heart of the Arts District of Los Angeles into an eccentric landscape. This is where the Luna Luna team unpacked and rebuilt the art playground rides currently on display in Luna Luna: Forgotten Fantasy. Through familiar attractions such as carousels, roller coasters or swings, Höller deconstructs the carnival experience by exploring its spectacularity, fun and joy through the lens of contemporary art.

In 1987, Höller had visited the original Luna Luna art fair created by impresario André Heller in Hamburg, Germany, which featured fully functioning rides and sculptures created by more than thirty acclaimed artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dalí , Sonia Delaunay, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Rebecca Horn and Roy Lichtenstein. After debuting in Hamburg, Luna Luna, which was designed as a traveling amusement park, closed following a change of ownership, only to reopen on 15 December 2023 thanks to Luna Luna’s partners, a team led by Drake’s DreamCrew, which brought a selection of the original works to the Arts District of Los Angeles, exhibiting them for the first time since 1987.
