EXHIBITION AT THE CHICAGO DESIGN MUSEUM / THE IMAGES

For the last edition of Confluence • 20+ we unveiled our their latest experimental porcelain projects called “Déshabillé” and “Clay Bodies”. The pieces were made for the show and under the label Julie & Jesse.

We also created an interactive installation transforming part of the display into a live ceramic studio in which we produced a unique edition of our Fragment(s) project, casting discarded moulds brought directly from the factories of Jingdezhen, China.

The exhibition ran from the 13th of October to the 4th of November 2017 at the Chicago Design Museum. Here are a few images of the show.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT THE CHICAGO DESIGN MUSEUM

We are proud to be a part of Confluence • 20+, a design exhibition curated by Amy Chow.
“Confluence • 20+” is a multidisciplinary exhibition that offers a perspective on Hong Kong’s creative ecologies. The show presents inspiring collaborative projects by the best design talents in Hong Kong, a city where east and west, tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and technology synergies.

Presented by the Hong Kong Design Centre, Confluence • 20+ is a multidisciplinary exhibition series that offers a perspective on Hong Kong’s creative ecologies. As the third edition of an ongoing exhibition series, Confluence • 20+ is a stage for creative collisions. The show presents twenty truly inspiring collaborative design projects by Hong Kong’s best design talents, lending insights into the co-evolving ecosystems of the city where east and west, tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and technology synergise.

Living in an ever-reinventing and culturally diverse metropolis, the creative minds in Hong Kong have never been restrained by the city’s confining urban space. Through continual collaboration with global practitioners, they add value to materials and objects, leveraging cultural influences and resources from China, Asia and beyond. The exhibits in Confluence • 20+ are coalescences of cross-boundary interactions and intertwining relationships. Deep inside the crux of every single piece is a community woven across socioeconomic and cultural silos.

Confluence • 20+ is a visual feast of creative works showcasing Hong Kong designers’ ingenuity in crossing boundaries: East, West, Heritage, Craftsmanship, Artistry, Urban Living, and Experiential Innovation. It is an exclusive visual adventure into Hong Kong’s vibrant creative ecologies that both insiders and public audience must not miss.

PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION BY MARC PROGIN AT LATITUDE 22N

“The Spatial Odyssey Back in Times”

A land and cosmic journey through the ages of Central Asia history
A photography exhibition by Marc Progin

Swiss photographer, writer and adventurer Marc Progin is back from the wilderness of Mongolia to present “The Spatial Odyssey Back in Times” a land and cosmic journey through the ages of Central Asia history.

His new photo exhibition will tell us of an extraordinary expedition which idea, goal and plan were to travel back in times with a camel caravan in search of ancient civilisations, empires and cultures while trying to discover anthropomorphic statues, tumuli, tombs, megaliths, grave steles, deer stones, petroglyphs and other remains dating back millenniums. An adventure on land and an ascent of eras of 20 millennia from the contemporary to the Paleolithic ages.

To travel back in time and to make the plan adapted to prehistoric conditions he lead his caravan of camels, in the dead of winter, to face snow, ice and blizzard representing the late Würm glaciation period dating back 12000 BC. While the day long camel treks were the time of the site discoveries he journeyed through the ages, at night, at temperatures dropping as low as 30 to – 50, to take photographs of the stone treasures he had found with the planet of the cosmos as for background. To survive the quite particular and harsh conditions lasting several months and spanning 18000 years he travelled with a complete yurt which, with 4 mongol nomads, he had to assemble every night, dismantle in the morning then load onto 4 of the 10 camels. They were Bactrian camels, the only breed who could bear such a journey, carrying 700 kg. of gear, including the yurt, a stove, frozen food, ice packed in bags to make water, firewood, cooking equipment and much else including the elderly foreigner…So no cycling this time. No running either. No gimmicks, nor gadjets such as jeep, a tracked vehicule, no support of any sort, not even a GPS. Only a compass with maps, a thermos and some modern antibiotics just in case. That’s the way true men used to live in with nature and abide by its laws. The itinerary crossed the deserts, mountains, rivers and lakes of western Mongolia at an altitude between 1800 to 2900 m., then moved on further up on the Altaï plateau to reach, at 3500 m. the late Paleolithic ages where prehistoric men left here and there, over millenia, material representations of other worlds. Stones of strange shapes, carved and chiselled of their rites and cults devoted to nature, animals and spirits as well as thousands of petroglyphs representing the daily life of our ancestors.
All together a wintry and cosmic migration as much on earth as in times past, and a spatial exploration of an open-air museum of human and natural history that nowadays only visit, its climate being so harsh, bad weather, wolves and birds of prey, as well as Mongol clans living there as nomads, migrating freely from the present to the past, slowly drifting with the progress of their caravans.

A HK permanent resident for 40 years, Marc Progin, is a Swiss watchmaker…retired from time, and a specialist of Mongolia.
With “Vastness, Magnificence and Simplicity” in 2006, “Nomads, Caravans and Migrations” in 2013, he introduced with his photos and conferences the natural world of Mongolia to Hong Kong.

SHIFTING OBJECTIVES: STUDIO VISIT

On December 17th 2016 we had the pleasure of sharing behind-the-scenes stories of our creations through a workshop organised by M+ the new museum for visual culture as part of the educational programme of the ‘Shifting Objectives’ exhibition taking place at the M+ Pavilion. We had a great time hosting a tour of the studio, demonstrating how our Fragment(s) vases are made and presenting our work to the participants. It’s always amazing to generate a dialogue through our designs and creative ideas. Thank you to the whole team at M+ for inviting us to take part in this wonderful sharing session.

SHIFTING OBJECTIVES: DESIGN FROM THE M+ COLLECTION

Fragment(s) vase B takes part in the M+’s debut design exhibition – Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection – from 30 Nov 2016 to 5 Feb 2017.

M+’s debut design exhibition – Shifting Objectives: Design from the M+ Collection – explores the many concepts and frameworks that have shaped and broadened our understanding of design. Featuring dozens of key objects and works – from mid-twentieth century Japanese furniture, to familiar products from Hong Kong’s manufacturing heyday, to drones, ‘copied’ goods, and digitally-enabled and open-source practices – this groundbreaking show illustrates how design philosophies and practices have changed from the post-Second World War period until now. In so doing, Shifting Objectives outlines the growing contours of the M+ design collection, which is the first of its kind in Asia and a core pillar of M+.

A series of programmes—including workshops, talks, a studio visit, a teachers’ private view, and guided tours for the public, schools, and visitors with specific needs—accompany the exhibition.

In the run up to the opening of the M+ building in 2019, the M+ Pavilion functions as a temporary home for M+ exhibitions and events.

Date
30 November 2016 to 5 February, 2017*

TALK WITH DESIGNER BRUNOMMCARVALHO AT LATITUDE 22N

CHINAWARE

By BrunoMMCarvalho

Please join us for a talk, followed by discussion and drinks with designer BrunoMMCarvalho about his upcoming exhibition ‘CHINAWARE’ opening May 5 2016 at Casa Garden, Fundação Oriente’s delegation in Macao.

At 6:30 pm, Thursday 28 of April 2016

At Latitude 22N

Latitude 22N, Unit 16B, Man Foong Industrial Building, Chai Wan, Hong Kong
T: 2480 1182 /

About ‘CHINAWARE’

Carvalho’s design project ‘CHINAWARE’ is a porcelain collection created in Jingdezhen that features four series: ‘Barbowls’, ‘Pleasure Cups’, ‘Class Bowls’, and ‘Imperial Marker’. Each was inspired by day-to-day life and the traditional typologies of Jingdezhen; ‘Imperial Marker’, for example, is a set of porcelain vases unexpectedly colored using a Chinese felt marker commonly used to mark production defaults in porcelain factories. Within Carvalho’s work, the pen strokes represent the displacement of master craftsmen, their techniques, and traditional materials in the face of rapid development.

About BrunoMMCarvalho

BrunoMMCarvalho was born in Lisbon in 1975. From 2000 and 2003, he worked in the conservation and restoration of historic Portuguese tiles at the National Museum of Tiles in Lisbon. Between 2003 and 2005, he held artistic residencies at the New Artistic Trends Studies Center (CENTA) in Vila Velha de Ródão, Portugal. In 2006, in partnership with Portugal’s Escola Superior de Artes e Design de Caldas da Rainha (ESAD.CR) and CENTA, he created and initiated Experimenta O Campo, a residency program that matches students with Portuguese craftsmen.

Carvalho studied at ESAD.CR, graduating in 2007 with a Ceramic Design Diploma. That same year, he launched his eponymous studio. The studio has never had a physical base; instead, Carvalho develops open-ended, site-specific projects and objects within—and inspired by—the cultural and social contexts of different locations, including, as of this writing, Lisbon, Braga, Bogas do Meio, and the Azores Islands in Portugal; Eindhoven and Den Bosch in Holland; Berlin; and Jingdezhen, China. From 2007 to 2012, he interned and then freelanced for Maarten Baas’s studio in The Netherlands. Between 2010 and 2012, Carvalho created Made Out Portugal, a promotional platform for Portuguese designers living and working abroad.

The designer has exhibited his work at several respected institutions and events, including, but not limited to, Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean (MUDAM) (Luxembourg, 2014), Experimenta Design (Lisbon, 2008-2011, 2014), Dutch Design Week (Eindhoven, 2008-2011), Show Me Gallery (Braga, 2012 and Design Days Dubai, 2014), De Krabbedans (Eindhoven, 2010), and Villa Noailles Hyères, France (2008). Additionally, in 2014, Carvalho co-curated the exhibition Never for Money, Always for Love at MUDAM (Luxembourg) with Anna Loporcaro.

THE PROJECT
Following a one week trip in the South East of China to discover its immense wholesale market and manufacturing centre, students of ECAL‘s Product Design Master program were asked to sketch and portray the many places they visited throughout their journey, capturing moments and casting a fresh look on China’s industry and everyday life.

MORE ON THE PROJECT
The majority of products we use in everyday life are manufactured in China, more specifically in the South Eastern provinces Guangdong. In this densely populated region, whole cities specialize in mass manufacturing home appliances, electronic devices, lighting or furniture.

A product designer today, wether as an entrepreneur or as a member of a larger organization, is certain to have some of its designs produced in China. But most occidental designers don’t have a faint idea where and how objects are eventually produced.

This trip brought the students of ECAL’s Product Design Master program to the South East of China to discover this immense wholesale market and manufacturing centre. Throughout their wanderings, students were asked to sketch and portray their journey, capturing moments and casting a fresh look on China’s industry and everyday life.
