Rome – A new exhibition is mashing together unusual combinations of everyday objects to create new, dream-like art.
The ‘Cut & Paste’ collection by Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk displayed at the Secondome gallery in Rome, includes seven of these imaginative objects. Combinations include clocks with birdcages, as well as chairs and cupboards stacked on top of each other. Materials are meshed together and include wood, bronze, copper textiles and ceramics.
The collection started as hundreds of sketches by van Eijk that explored opposing themes: ‘reflection and impulse’ and ‘farm and bourgeois’.
The playful imagination seen in van Eijk’s Cut & Paste collection is an example of the fantastical, ‘wild-sky thinking’ embraced in Dreamtelligent innovation.
