No time to waste
6th of February - 8th of June 2020
Exhibition NO TIME TO WASTE
Times of simplistic supply of our daily consumer items seem to have perished. Innumerable forms in color, material, taste, size, smell, brand and quality are constantly thrown at us as quickly decayed consumer articles that often goes along with the choice overload. Purchased and used today, written off tomorrow or even today. And what happens to all those unused particles when they may no longer be art for the eye, taste, hearing, smell or feeling? They end up disrespectfully on a large pile labeled as WASTE.
Discovering, experimenting and reusing special materials, thinking differently with a funny twist and combining unthinkable elements which are very typical of the world-famous stream of "Dutch Design" that gained international fame and recognition in the 1990s. Celebrities such as Piet Hein Eek, Tejo Remy, Richard Hutten are some of the names that have caused a change in thinking about the possibilities of recycling. Richard Hutten even states: "If you don't have a circular business, you won't have a business".
The Dutch Designers and artists of today ...
The designers of this time put a stop to the vanishing of this respect and lift the baton to ultimate heights of prestige. Dutch Design Hotel Artemis initiates this exhibition and has found THE detectives with style who have squeezed their way through the mountains of left overs, to pick up the discarded, rich elements and use them for a new design.
Dutch Designer - exhibitor speaks:
“I am transforming the frown that gives rise to the seriousness of over-consumption and production into a surprised smile on everyone's face! I want to open those art loving eyes to the unprecedented possibilities of all those cool, unnoticed, wandering, sometimes rotting waste particles around us. Nothing must go to waste, everything can come back as a surprise in the circle of our existence”.
