Marija Puipaitė & Vytautas Gečas. Envisioned Comfort
2019.05.23 – 2019.06.20
Visiting hours: 24/7
Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas merged their two different design practices into one object, using a fantasy as a their starting point. This resulted in a series of different types of chairs which have the same principal of construction. This time it’s a seat based on the ergonomics of a saddle.
One of them had a fantasy about an object that could bring a womb-like pleasure, meaning – the ultimate satisfaction that the material environment can give.
This abstract mode of thinking allows to erase what we know about domestic objects and opens up the possibility to re-think and re-create them. The same way the mind gives a clear body to the fantasy by restraining it, the construction defines and forms a fluid shape into an ergonomic entity.
apiece is a window gallery that exhibits a single artwork of contemporary visual art or a design object at a time. The format of apiece exhibitions has been inspired by our wish to encourage the audience to do their own research on the author of the artwork/object, as well as on contemporary art on the whole.
