Perception of Time and Contemporary Design
Golden, larger-than-life everyday objects placed on a pedestal like icons of consumption, surrounding by auras, a human skeleton covered in leather that is playing electric guitar, crockery with signs of use that is used to decorate surfaces: in an enigmatic and also critical way Now. Perception of Time and Contemporary Design examines a theme that is always present – albeit latently – in our daily lives, and furthermore calls inherited images and themes from our times into question. Contemporary design appears here as a glittering medium that functions in a range of different contexts: In the postmodern culture of consumption, as well as art, seduction and visions of the self.
