Interventions in the V&A Furniture Galleries by Ineke Hans. As a temporary curator notes and remarks will be made to the galleries' permanent display, rethinking and updating the V&A's furniture collection for 2017 and beyond.
Furniture is close to us. Literally. We always needed it and will need it in the future. But furniture has to deal with a rapid changing reality with changing production, promotion and selling methods, a surplus of furniture in a society where people move to smaller houses and offices and a society on the edge of consuming less. It has to get to terms with the digital, our current social context and new ways of living.With text and drawn interventions - placed in the Furniture Galleries as Cuckoo eggs, to be found as Easter eggs - Ineke rethinks and updates the V&A's furniture collection for 2017 and beyond. For the V&A she made this exhibition in the Furniture Galleries that taps into social changes in our society, the historie and future of furniture design and its production.what: Cuckoo Eggs: interventions in the V&A, see morewhere: V&A Museum London, Rooms 133-135, Furniture, The Dr. Susan Webber Gallery, Level 3when: 17-25 Sept.
