0/10 Lernert & Sander
Iconic Dutch Design is recontexualized by a younger generation in the jubilee exhibition of contemporary design publisher Thomas Eyck. In collaboration with Zuiderzee Museum and curator Jules van den Langenberg this section is first to publish a series of new projects.
To mark his jubilee ten product series were selected from Thomas Eyck’s collection, which are exemplary for the collaborations the publisher & distributor has developed with designers and producers since 2007. Accordingly, ten young designers, artists and architects were invited to create a project in which the iconic t.e. objects are studied and recontextualised. The retrospective exhibition reviews the past decade and forecasts a potential future for the t.e. collection. Installation 0/10 by artists and filmmakers Lernert & Sander is a reflection on the craft businesses with which Thomas Eyck has collaborated in the past decade.
Artists and filmmakers Lernert & Sander reflect on The work serves as an introduction to the exhibition. It consists of a film projector that projects its own birth using tangible 16mm film. The film shows a number of the workshops where the parts of the projector are re-created, in wicker, porcelain, flax, copper, oak and leather. Pewter, glass and paper are also used, but are not shown in the film.
This project celebrates attention and time, the core values of Thomas Eyck.
The projector includes the following components:
*the handle is made of wicker and woven by ESH Vlechtwerk in Wapse (Drenthe)
*the buttons are made of pewter, cast by Flevotin of Zeewolde (Flevoland)
*the light and lens housing are made of porcelain, shaped and fired by StudioZAND in Amersfoort (Utrecht)
*the film reel is copper, forged by Dubbelop in Schoonhoven (South Holland)
*an extra film reel (not used here) is made of glass, blown by Van Tetterode Glass Studio in Amsterdam (North Holland)
*the cord is made of flax, made by Touwslagerij Steenbergen of Gorssel (Gelderland)
*the projector arms and parts of the film reel and film canister are made of oak and constructed by Kuperus & Gardenier of Lelystad (Flevoland)
*the exterior and the back cover of the film canister are made of leather, sewn by De Buffel in Terheijden (North Brabant)
