    Featuring furniture, objects d’árt, ready mades and one-offs.

    Exhibition at Dick Raaijmakerszaal, Natlab.

    The Big Meshed Up by contemporary designer Tessa Koot shows the ‘in-between collection of collections’ consisting of furniture, objects d’árt, ready-mades and one-offs. The exhibition features a collection in the making, unfolding the nitty gritty evolution of her design practice.

    Always on the lookout for new interpretations of objects she finds, both in real life and the digital space, Koot collects images and 3d models in the biggest thrift store of all…the internet.

    Although the selection for this exhibition focusses merely on the physical world, Koot sees no difference between the digital and physical. When it comes to redefining the (used) objects, found footage and digital imagery, she seamlessly stretches the boundaries by juxtaposing existing constraints between form and functionality. When stripped off from their original purpose and context, her findings become a resource for new meaning and interpretation in quirky ways; a pool noodle is turned into a chair leg, a plastic banana becomes a doorknob. Blurring the lines between these worlds, Koot is continuously mixing and matching old fashioned-techniques and analog crafts with the possibilities of digital tools, exploring the potentials of modern technology in her design practice.
