A CONVERSATION IN DESIGN: THE UNTAMED VS. THE ORDERLY

Fr 29.09.–Su 8.10.2017

Cocktail 30.09.2017 5pm
Finissage 08.10.2017 5pm

From South Africa to Japan – a dialogue-based group show explores two vastly separated worlds by articulating rarely told life stories of textiles, objects, and symbols. While African design is in part based on a specific kind of “primitivism” giving the designer the scope to transpose reality into abstract forms and patterns, Japanese design is founded on a pronounced form of sensibility with which objects are assembled in a frequently sensitive and fully deliberate manner. From Buddhism-influenced Kyoto and the pulsating capital of Tokyo all the way to Cape Town – the exhibition is a genuine melting pot of cultures, showing social and material innovations, self-initiated production processes, and different traditions of artistic handicraft.
