NORTH ATLANTIC ART AND DESIGN GATHERED IN HOBRO


20170206 Barb 624

 

EXHIBITION. After success of MODULE MODULAR at the Paris Fashion Week back in 2017 it is time for the pieces to dust off their striking silhouettes and travel on. This time, MODULE MODULAR is going to be on show at the museum of modern art in the Jutish city of Hobro, Denmark. Barbara I Gongini is taking part in an exhibition exposing work of North Atlantic, namely Icelandic, Greenlandic and Faroese, artists and designers to a wider public.

 

MODULE MODULAR is a progressive take on the relationship between human and nature. The art pieces invite to a stimulating and to some extent progressively eerie experience. The unusual use and application of materials calls attention to leather morphed to human features, silhouettes blasted out of conventional proportions and it all is crowned by felted hair. The likeness of the pieces makes one think of female fairytale antagonists.

 

MODULE MODULAR can be seen as part of NORDATLANTISK KUNST OG DESIGN exhibition in KUNSTETAGERNE museum of modern art - Store Torv, DK-9500 Hobro September 15th to December 29th 2018
