Julie Tuyet Curtiss Created the Perfect Place For Your Art World Secrets
Our Favourite Artist Releases Arty Box With Case Studyo
Art Stuff 04 Jun 2020

We’ve found the perfect object you didn’t know you needed! Yep, that’s right, a box for storing all your secrets, and better still, it was designed by uber-cool artist Julie Tuyet Curtiss. The collaboration – called Le Femme Secrete – with Tokyo-based Case Studyo comprises a walnut and ash wood screen printed box in the form of a faceless female.

Julie is famous for her portraits of faceless women with big hair and pointy nails, which has now been transformed into a beautiful 3-dimensional functional work of art. The box, which actually looks like a sculpture, has a secret compartment where you can hide your most precious objects. On first appearances, the secretive female stares out with a blank expression, almost judging you, resting her chin in her hand. But concealed behind her face is a hidden compartment. It basically allows the collector to share an intimate secret with a work of art. Super cool, eh?!

Released in an edition of 16, the box entices its audience to actively engage with Julie’s work; completing the puzzle it presents with their own stories.
