UIC is pleased to announce the opening of Ania Jaworska's exhibition SET at Volume Gallery, November 11 from 5-8pm.
From the designer:
The stage is set; the set is staged.
SET is a collection of units that share visual and physical similarities. This fixed resemblance is identified by consistency of color, material, scale, shape, form, and self-aware parts of the grouping. Each unit within the assembly is an autonomous entity contributing its own character and function to the whole. Respective units act and appear familiar, sharing common traits with well-known domestic objects as well as ambiguously recollecting visual references set in our memory.
Correspondent to those similarities are certain dissimilarities. Simplistic and known forms are exaggerated in such way as to achieve authoritative and imposing proportions. Not only do the individual units command the space around it, but also direct the body, making one conscious and aware of their form. The furniture in the collection sets the stage for specific actions, arranges behaviors and defines new attitudes.
