Objectified

Situated in Zona Tortona, Sander Mulder presented new pieces examining industrial archetypes and processes alongside photography from Diewke van den Heuvel.

Re-examining processes, materials and archetypes of industry, Sander Mulder exhibited new pieces in his presentation Objectified. Complementing his furniture pieces were works from photographer Diewke van den Heuvel.

For Mulder, the reinterpretation and recognition of familiar imagery or icons is important to his work. Bringing to mind stacked containers housed in docks, brightly coloured container cabinets play with the idea of storage but on a reduced scale. On the other hand, faceted metal lamp shades reflect the method and cut of gemstones and their colour but blown out of proportion. Candelabras are fashioned from cast-iron pipework, showing the beauty of the connections while table legs are inspired by the form and stability of crow's feet. A fragile vase combines the production process with the final product, where the 'scaffolding' required to support the vase while it is being rapid prototyped is maintained as the decoration. On the white walls, the industrial context of Diewke van den Heuvel's photography continues in the mood of Mulder's work.
