MUSEUM ANGEWANDTE KUNST PRESENTS SUR/FACE: MIRRORS EXHIBITIONJune 24, 2017 10:42 am
SUR/FACE: Mirrors exhibition in Frankfurt at the Museum Angewandte Kunst includes Fredrikson Stallard’s Detroit Table. The table sits alongside other pieces from various fields of both Art and Design and is just one of the many examples of how Fredrikson Stallard like to treat classic materials in order to develop new shapes and concepts that play with the human mind and world surrounding the work; in this case, using light and reflection to further explore shape, design, and our innate perception as to how these materials should work.
SUR/FACE: Mirrors at the Museum Angewandte Kunst focuses on the phenomenon of the mirrored surface in art, design and architecture of the present. The show features products by designers such as Ron Arad, Ettore Sottsass and Oskar Zieta and artworks by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Isa Genzken, Andy Warhol and many others. The exhibition is composed of more than one hundred objects made of mirrored glass, highly polished metal or reflective plastic that attracts the viewer’s gaze, steer it, occasionally confound it, and offer new perspectives.
