Metadomestic at the Landesgalerie, Linz, Austria opens 22nd September 2011
Inspired by a short story by Georges Perec, "Approaches to what?" (L'Infraordinaire, 1977), the exhibition shows the works of various artists and designers who are trying to answer this question. Their strategies are based largely on the use of fictions by Strange sky, humor, futuristic utopia, the aesthetics of the precarious and the celebration of anarchic misunderstandings between people, objects and environments.
Metadomestic invites visitors to their conventions in terms of what they mean by "applied" (decorative? Functionally? Non-intellectual?), To question and to develop new interpretations of the word, while contemporary works in a multidisciplinary thinking approach to discover an object-based practices.
