MINDCRAFT17 - TIME
Cloister of San Simpliciano
Piazza Paolo VI, 6, 20121 Milano, Italy
Time serves as the overarching theme when MINDCRAFT, the Danish Arts Foundation's annual flagship exhibition for Danish craft and design, is presented at the world's leading design event, FuoriSalone, in Milan.
The inspiration for this year's MINDCRAFT exhibition theme, TIME, according to curator and designer Henrik Vibskov, sprang directly from the historic setting for the exhibition, the San Simpliciano cloister, where time plays a central role in structuring the flow and rhythm of life. Time thus also formed a key focus for the 18 makers and designers selected to take part in MINDCRAFT17, who were asked to address and interpret a specific time span or time of day in their contributions, which are all created especially for the exhibition.
Under this general theme, the participants explore how time can help explain what makes us tick, for example with regard to the rhythms and rituals of life, but also how time affects the creative process—from the drying time of a ceramic glaze to considerations about when or for how long an object will be used.
