Studio Job, Containers II

For the second time Galerie VIVID will present a solo presentation of Studio Job at Design Miami/. In 2010 Studio Job made 'Piece for Peace' in association with the world famous Belgian crystal producer Val Saint Lambert. This unique showpiece was designed for the Cabinet of Van Rompuy, President of the European Council in Brussels. During this period Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel discovered a large supply of hundred years old, hand-blown crystal pieces that were never crafted into finished products. They selected five old vessels and designed a new series of unique pieces called 'Containers II'. The series include a coffee pot, a waste basket, a saucepan, a picklehaube and a stewpan all on high gloss laquered pedestals. Containers II are full of paradoxes: the functional and the surreal, rich and poor, good and evil, high culture and low pop. These Studio Job sculptures are metaphors that explore authentic arts.
Galerie VIVID is proud to introduce this important new work in Miami
