We tend to unconsciously perceive the existence of objects, following their contours with our eyes, distinguishing between the inside and the outside. This also means that objects without definite contours are not always recognized as objects. If the contours are evident, non-visual information can be inserted. The exhibition by Nendo starts with this fundamental principle. By manipulating contours and lines, the existence of an object can take on depth, and elements invisible to the eye are recreated in the mind of the viewer in a natural way.
The show presents 79 collections, including: border table with a fragmented profile of rooms, trace collection that visualizes trails of movement, un-printed material addressing various forms of expression of paper, objectextile, a collaboration with Jil Sander, where the contours of 3D objects are projected and transformed into fabric, and jellyfish vase, a new collection that attempts to re-establish the relationship between the object and water through contours of color.
The installation of the exhibition nendo:invisible outlines at CID in Grand-Hornu establishes a close relationship with the host spaces.
