Designer Alexander Lervik examines the relationship between art and design in exhibition Imaginations x12, which is on display at Sven-Harry’s art museum between 24.1-9.2. The exhibition, which consists of twelve different works, is an attempt not only to capture today’s spirit of time but also to demonstrate the proximity the art has to the creation process as a furniture designer.
Among the works, which all relate to one of all areas of art, are interpretations of, among other things, surrealism, minimalism and video art. In all his works, Alexander has explored how art can interact with and utilize technological development.
In the exhibition Alexander Lervik tries to play with the idea of what can and cannot be art. How a utility item like a chair becomes something completely different if the format and size change or what happens if graffiti can take place in the living room. He also highlights some of our major societal problems such as involuntary loneliness and the environmental impact of aviation and how this affects our way of looking at experiences.
Adea has produced Saltu piece, which is a sofa with aluminium frame that “hovers” suspended on wires. In the exhibit there is also Ratio chair, which can also be seen at Adea’s stand at Stockholm Furniture Fair, C16:38
