Wonderful ThingsSeason 2021
“Wonderful Things: Season 2021” is the result of a research process on the lives of things. The focus was on the practices of daily resistance that are deployed in them, which allow us to overcome the obsolescence of objects of daily consumption through creativity.
Exhibited in the six showcases of the Design Gallery, domestic spaces such as the kitchen, patio and garden are explored in the key of a commercial catalog, inspired by real homes in the Metropolitan Region.
For six months, the curators learned, analyzed and collected information through in-depth interviews and photographs. Then, carefully, they selected the things that make up this entire sample, questioning the current discourses that reveal minimalism.
Highlighting the particular intervention and conservation techniques that people undertake to keep them in the home, this exhibition reclaims the potential that popular ingenuity and creativity present when it comes to thinking about sustainable homes from a design perspective.
The curators saw potential as possible flower pots in tin cans for preserves and paint, some terrace tables in beer crates, a sunshade holder in a safety cone, a diverse dinner set in loose plates, food containers in glass jars and a mop that keeps homes clean in old T-shirts.
