Design Miami/Basel 2019
Design at Large with FOS and Guillermo Santomà
Etage Projects is participating in this year's Design at Large presenting long-time gallery represented artists FOS and Guillermo Santomà. Design Miami/Basel's Design at Large is the highlight exhibition platform for large-scale works and installations taking place during the fair 11 - 16 June. This year tentatively titled "Elements: Earth," Design at Large aims to explore the role of design, materials and making in a post-nature, Anthropocene future.
'A Million Times' and 'Leaking Fountain' by FOS and 'Piano' by Guillermo Santomá, together reflect on the role of human beings in the newly declared epoch of the Anthropocene. FOS’s film 'A Million Times' depicts an explorer’s echoing journey into the Arctic, while the neon installation 'Leaking Fountain' was first displayed in 2018 on an island in Copenhagen harbor, suggesting that the origins of that body of water might be broken plumbing. Functioning as a working instrument, Santomá’s 'Piano' is made of rough-hewn foam embedded with speakers, evoking an ambiguous relic of a postindustrial future.
