ON BALANCE
ANNE BRANDHØJ

PRESENTED BY TABLEAU
JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2021
THE INHERENT FUNCTION OF THE SHELF AND THE PEDESTAL IS TO SUPPORT OTHER THINGS. IN THE SOLO EXHIBITION ON BALANCE AT TABLEAU FURNITURE DESIGNER ANNE BRANDHØJ CHALLENGES THE CHARACTER OF THESE FURNITURE BY TRANSFORMING THEM INTO INDIVIDUAL, SCULPTURAL OBJECTS. MORE THAN 100 UNIQUE COMPOSITIONS OF COMBINED ELEMENTS IN WOOD BALANCE FREELY AS PEDESTALS OR AS SHELVES HANGING ON THE WALL.
[READ MORE] ON BALANCE ELEVATES THE SHELF AND THE PEDESTAL AS AESTHETIC OBJECTS RATHER THAN WHAT THEY SUPPORT – AN ELEMENT WHICH IS ALSO ABSENT IN THE EXHIBITION. THE NEW ROLE OF THE OBJECTS IS FURTHER AMPLIFIED BY BEING CONSTRUCTED OF LEFTOVER WOOD AND OFF CUTS WITH KNOTS, MEDULLARY RAYS, CRACKS, AND PITCH POCKETS THAT ORIGINALLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN BURNT AND NOT NORMALLY IS THE VIEWED OBJECT IN AN ART AND DESIGN EXHIBITION
