constructed & deconstructed
Last september at the London Design Festival our eyes were attracted by ceramics works and concrete pieces. We would love to share with you these two approachs.
At Gallery Fumi we saw Johanes Nagel’s fascinating pieces. Each piece is a composite of an “assembled object” as Johanes says. Those pieces are shown in groups. They explore and challenge the future and the past of ceramics.
Vera, chapter one by KM and EM is an on-going project, the first chapter has been launched during London Design Festival.Vera is a fictional character based on a series of photographs from a girl’s family found a few year ago in a second hand shop in Brighton. A group of artists & designers have been commissioned to respond to one image from the series in order to create the first chapter of Vera’s fictive and collaborative biography.
We particularly like Philippe Malouin’s work. “The 1:4 bowls can been seen as controlled versions of Vera’s mother personality: slightly different, all rigid.”
