The third Biennale exhibition, the FACTORY collection produced by ONOMA, The Cooperative of Artisans, Designers and Artists in Fiskars, will be curated by Anniina Koivu. This show will reflect on the creative potential of “the village as a factory”, look into historical and contemporary production processes and present new perspectives for design making, by combining experimental ideas and methods.
The design ensemble will be curated by designer Jasper Morrison, the master of minimalistic details, who is intrigued by daily objects formed over time and their purpose of use. Creativity also deforms and deepens over time, and to reflect this idea, Morrison invites different generations of designers to participate in this exhibition, with no upper limit.
The art curator of the Biennale Jenni Nurmenniemi will highlight interspecies coexistence and the functionality of materials instead of the human-centered perspective. Keywords include immersiveness, porosity, breathability and transparency. The temporal layers of the environment, the continuums between the spaces occupied by the Biennale, and extended connections to the village architecture and social structure will be emphasized by means of contemporary art.
The artists and the designers will be published in the end of January.
