Gallery ALL(凹空间)将于2014年12月3日至7日参展设计迈阿密 (Design Miami)十周年展会。Gallery ALL作为中国首家专注于艺术家具及限量设计品的画廊,在此次展览中有幸成为最年轻的画廊入选参展设计迈阿密第一届Curio版块,我们将诚意呈现设计师李鼐含的新作个展I AM A MONUMENT - CCTV衣橱。

此次展会是李鼐含”I AM A MONUMENT”系列中CCTV衣橱的首次亮相,它将建筑外形、传统红木木材与数字工艺相结合。李鼐含借用北京地标建筑CCTV大楼的外形,将此建筑变成了可以放置家中、具有功能性的家具。她的设计灵感来自于汉代皇帝家中庭院的假山和盆栽,将整个中国的山川地貌缩小化,一窥而知晓天地。这件将北京地标性建筑之一的CCTV大楼以1:100的比例缩小并设计演变成了可以打开使用的衣橱。

设计迈阿密是全球最顶尖的限量家具、收藏性设计品展会,是艺术巴塞尔 (Art Basel) 的设计部分,而艺术巴塞尔是全球历史最久远、最具盛名的博览会之一。自设计迈阿密自2004年成功举办第一次设计展后,从只有15个参展画廊发展至今,参展的画廊已经翻了三倍。如今能够参加设计迈阿密已是每个设计师心中的目标。设计迈阿密致力于集结来自世界各地的高质量的画廊、博物馆以及知名收藏家、鉴赏家和设计师来一起创建一个首屈一指的艺术设计观赏胜地。今年举行的设计迈阿密将着重于美国现代设计,也开设了新的具有前瞻性的设计展览版块-设计Curio。命名为Curio源自词语好奇“Curiosity”,对新事物的好奇,对现代设计的好奇。四个独立的展位散布在场地四周,将成为实践性最宽的设计看点。展览的设计品将超越收藏价值的范围,设计包含了科学、技术等各个领域,结合了纯手工制作及对设计原型的未知探究。

李鼐含的由 CCTV大楼设计而成的衣橱丰富有趣又不乏诙谐幽默。CCTV大楼是最能代表中国现代的也是最有话题的建筑之一,将无限循环的回圈变成衣橱,意味着人们每天在循环忙碌的生活里。李鼐含的灵感来自于儿时就浏览中国山水画册的经历,认为人类有一种天性,即掌握天下之事物的控制欲望,把自然界中的山、水、石缩小放在自己的家中或庭院里。 一次她偶然在朋友家中看到巨大的雕塑进而萌生出本次新作的灵感,以一种野心又智慧的心理和嬉戏的方式表现这样的心理体会。在本次展览中,CCTV衣柜的展出将伴有雾霾围绕的背景,效仿首都北京雾霾的冬日景观。

Collector Preview:  Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 from 12pm to 6pm

Exhibition runs from December 3rd – December 7th, 2014

Gallery ALL is pleased to announce the participationof Design Miami/’s 10 year anniversary fair, presenting Chinese designer Naihan Li’s I  AM A MONUMENT – CCTV for the Design Curio/ program.The exhibition runs from December 3rd to December 7th at Miami Beach. As a first-time participant to the fair, Gallery ALL presents an animated installation of the newest work from Li’s I AM A MONUMENT seriesentitled I AM A MONUMENT – CCTV, responding to the theme of the Curio program that emphasizes surprising installation and creative production, challenges and contextualizes familiar design narratives.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/_c_01ubMM8mF-m9Ay8QySfNqFCKYTepuUnLD2zMKNiPFtR3FVHBilV01jmOa7_AnZ6_pWdZhYfBgF8TJjEGMeL0fo0TdHXVJMOb.jpg

This series takes inspiration from the legend of the Han Dynasty emperor, who had the entire landscape of China reproduced in miniature bonsai trees in his garden, so he could gaze upon it from his bedroom window. CCTV stands for Chiusna Central Television, or the tower of the station in Beijing that is designed by OMA. I AM A MONUMENT – CCTV shrinks the landmark buildingto 1/100 scale and turns it into collectible furniture.

This desire can be seen as well in Chinese traditional paintings, which play with the idea of scale from a subjective point of view while minimizing the universe. In modern China, people want to possess icons and monuments to their age yet live with them at a domestic scale. Interpreting the entire Curio project as a chest of curiosities presenting the variety of practices engaged by designers in the world today, the I AM A MONUMENT – CCTV Installation includes animated fog that represents the billowing smog of Beijing’s wintery landscape, Chinese bonsai shrubs that inspired the entire series, both traditional and digital carpentry tools used in the work’s construction and personal itemsuch as clothing that transport the public icon into the artist’s private world.

The I AM A MONUMENT Series centers on the designer’s ongoing exploration of architecture-turned furniture over the past 2 years. Other works in the collection include an Edinburgh palm house, a New York Stock Exchange-turned shrine, a Pentagon-turned daybed, and a United Nations headquarter building-turned bookcase. Together, I AM A MONUMENT allows for a reimagining of how we look at the world in a playful way.
