The Photograph Gallery
Final month WHO Gallery, situated in Lisbon, Portugal, opened the LESS exhibition with works by Pedro Sottomayor. The exhibition presents new works that lose the surplus that types them, whereas sustaining their perform. I really like the three inside/exterior benches and desk, made out of perforated metallic and the way they’re benches are introduced as if the items of metallic have simply fallen from the floor like rain.
From the discharge:
The query of usefulness might have a lifeless conclusion, reminiscent of to be or to not be, black or white. Beneath a perspective of earth’s materials assets’ use and their finitude, the solutions complexify. The ‘LESS’ exhibition, by industrial designer Pedro Sottmayor, approaches the theme by enjoying with the varied potential readings, resembling ‘USE LESS’. From the point of view of an financial system of assets or communication, in that abuse and/or an extreme use of fabric assets or language might have ineffective outcomes, abuse is known because the extreme use of what’s strictly essential; the designer proposes this boundary between the helpful and the ineffective.
The exhibition runs by way of November 5, 2011.
