Gustaf Nordenskiöld exhibition / Galerie NeC, Hong Kong
August 24 - September 29, 2012
Opening: Thursday, August 23, from 6 pm.
Gustaf Nordenskiölds ceramic work deals with issues about functionality, primitivism, natural forces, and perceptible method. He is exploring the field between design, crafts, arts and industrial production.
The exhibition consists of new museum collections, post production, the assembly of pre-existing and newly manufactured items, and works transformed to form new en-sembles. The exhibition presents ambivalent ceramic works, virgin archaeological objects of unknown origin that expresses beauty in the making, or in disrepair.
"My intention is to create works in which the methods are a prerequisite for the final result, where traces of the process remains in the finished work.
To freeze a moment for posterity. To preserve and display an action. What is worth preserving? Methods where the finished objects conveys trace of effort, different movement patterns or natural deformation/formation.”
Traces, as a memory of its creation, Gustaf Nordenskiöld, 2012.
In partnership with the Consulate General of Sweden, Hong Kong.
Gallery Hours: Monday to Saturday, 11 am - 8 pm. Sunday, 1 - 6 pm.
