I object

Art& dialogue

Once rocks could talk, now we love our espresso machine

(text Sofia Kapnissi)

Objects, natural or manufactured, have a special place in the world as animated partners of our wishes, dreams and aspirations. Either as possessions or as symbols of identification, objects tell our story in a blunt way – the way of an object. Through history, artists next to the plain utensils would make objects that carried stories of fertility, childhood, worship, status, etc. At the same time, people would become a stone to hide from the enemy, a dagger to fight back, an ointment to heal the beloved. This sharing of humanity between people and objects is what the project I-object is about.
We ask artists to put themselves on the shelf as an object which will tell their story, a story.

The small ”I object” will be  displayed on a rotating platform in a gallery or shop window. The works will be displayed for 2 weeks only, and then it is replaced by an other artist’s work. Each displayed artwork will be documented and shown on our internet site.

  • A digital photo-frame will display the artist’s name, title of work and website.
  • there will be more that one display, Estonia, Belgium Zimbabwe, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Netherlands.
