Stockholm Design Week: Ung Svensk Form/Young Swedish Design 2020. 4 February - 22 March. JULIA OLANDERS – BETWEENNESS
Betweenness are vessels made out of plaster and insulation foam. These hidden building materials are cast in sewn fabric moulds, which are then removed. By working with dualities, the onlooker is challenged to think about what surrounds us: the norms connected to our bodies, to materials, to spaces and genders.
Objects that challenge truths about beautiful and ugly, prototype and product, traditional and innovative. Betweenness is neither or both, original forms that can be interpreted as our age’s version of ancient marble statues – made to wither in just a few months.
