Description

Extended until January 2022

With Standing Stones, the Design Museum Brussels is launching its program of exploring the dialogue between art and contemporary design through a carte blanche. The current installation is designed by the Greek duo Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis who founded the studio Objects of Common Interest together in 2015.

Through the use of inflatable figures made out of biodegradable acryl, the unique installation Standing Stones reinterprets the used forms and figures of the Cycladic civilization during the Bronze Age. The visitor is submerged in a space that looks dreamy and illusionary because of the use of mirrors. Here, the visitor reflects on the duality between transparence and opacity, softness and hardness and, the temporary and the permanent. In the middle of the installation a circle of stools can be found, placed around a reflecting ‘pond’ of mirrors, that invites the visitor to contemplate and have a moment of introspection.
