EUROPEAN DESIGN TALENT SELECTED BY LIDEWIJ EDELKOORT
LONDON | 4 - 23 SEPTEMBER 2017
PARIS | 11 DECEMBER 2017 - 13 JANUARY 2018
“A fresh generation of designers is responding to our chaotic age – investigating their identity and roots, often going back to the beginning of time to uncover authenticity and primal instincts. They find solace in their ancestral backgrounds and a shared sense of ancient history.
The brut expressions that result from this movement dominate this exhibition. Graduates catalogue their experiences by imagining unknown artefacts; remnants of a distant past rendered in raw materials such as sand, stone, clay and concrete, warmed up by natural wovens and wild fibres. These young designers create hybrids between the industrial process and the handcrafted, reincarnating found fragments and composing new collages; thus proposing rituals for a more humble and sustainable lifestyle, and envisioning a form of contemporary archaeology.”
