ARTJECTS / Sala Vinçon / Barcelona / From July 8th to August 8th.
A collection of special objects, which provide unconventional relationships with users, tell and generate stories. Objects have an influence on our behavior, they are active agents and not mere instruments. The rituals that govern these relationships can be as absurd as transcendent.
“The designer is the archer aiming at the target (the problem) with the desire to hit in the center, place of commitment and balance between the many factors of a project. The artist is another type of archer who consciously shoots the arrow outside the range, with the will to go and look to what is beyond the boundaries of what is possible. This research attitude, which up to now was considered belonging to art, is shared by many disciplines including design. It can be said that what counts is the degree of experimentation with which projects are addressed, the ability to ask questions that challenge reality. Objects, observed in their multiple connections, can be very revealing of how we are and how we could be. ”
