DESIGN IS (NOT) ART

The fourth edition of the Design City biennial, organised in collaboration with the City of Luxembourg, will explore the links that exist between design and art and the place these two fields occupy in our “ultraconnected” society. There will be a site-specific installation in the station district, while the Cercle Cité will host the next stage of the In Progress project, along with an exhibition devoted to new materials. The Sensity design agency will also undertake a display project in public space. Finally, the exhibition QuiZ will be exhibited at Mudam.

WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF DESIGN CITY LUXEMBOURG

The objects gathered together for the exhibition defy pre-established categories such as sculpture, product, furniture, etc. They intrigue us, leaving us perplexed and, above all, incite great freedom in terms of apprehending and appreciating them. These barely-recognisable and stimulating things go beyond the usual “art or design?” or “art and design?” formulas, rendering the question of the status of objects obsolete and aiming to explore the state of things today through their incongruous, astonishing or falsely recognizable forms.

The intention is not to recount the history and usage of the glass bottle, but to map out the relationship between these functional receptacles and contemporary glass design.

Marisa Merz’s entire Roman experience will be presented within the exhibition thanks to the photographs of Claudio Abate, who has documented the artist’s shows and actions since the Sixties.

The exhibition will cover Marisa’s entire creative horizon: from her ‘knitted’ copper threads to her nylon sculptures and wax installations. Merz’s world will be explored in its every expression in an attempt to reinstate her asystematic yet extremely coherent character.
