Tomorrow, 31st of January, it is time for the opening of the exhibiton ‘Pinned Up – 25 Years of Design’ by Marcel Wanders. The title suggests the way in which the designer and his work are ‘pinned up’ and analyzed in the Stedelijk Museum. Marcel Wanders (Boxtel, 1963) is seen as one of the most pioneering artists of the past decennia. He is internationally known for his products, furniture, interiors and art direction.
Gallerie Alex Daniels – Reflex Amsterdam is proud to announce the collaboration with Marcel Wanders on the Snotty Valentine XL, a bronze sculpture in an edition of 8 produced in conjunction with his solo show “Marcel Wanders: ‘Pinned up’ – 25 Years of Design” at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
The Snotty Valentine is a special edition of Influenza, one of the Airborne Snotty Vases which was created in 2001. The design is based on a 3D scan of airborne mucus and finally produced using a digital prototyping technology. The Snotty vases were first introduced by Cappellini in Milan in 2001.
With the addition of a fresh flower, this frozen in time mucus fossil creates its own eternal presence. In the ultimate battle against death Marcel Wanders creates eternal signs of life, projecting fossils of life breath leaning up with eternal evergreen flowers. The dream of eternity in our timely existence.
The sculpture will be exclusively available at the gallery from February 1st. Contact the gallery for more information.
The exhibition ‘Pinned Up – 25 Years of Design’ at the Stedelijk Museum is on view until the 15th of June 2014.
