Tide indicator « Tideograph » – Les M Studio
In a world where everyone are in contact with everyone else, having something truly collective emerge often as difficult. In this context of globalisation and migrations, the issue of identity is more and more prevalent. An identity in its original sense means: what is identical to us, keep us together. Beyond differences, what make us identical?
To explore this question, Ideal Lab’ invited artists, designers and the inhabitants of two harbour cities and industrial micropolis: Saint-Nazaire in France and Florø in Norway. After having exchanged and found recurring issues, the Agents have imagined objects and art pieces producing identity. An identity based on what brings people together, local techniques and aesthetics. Three scenarios structure the exhibition: Share / Adapt / Belong The work within these three scenarios is being presented for the first time at the Biennale Internationale Design in Saint-Etienne from the 12th of March to the 12th of April 2015.
Agents: Anne Lise Stenseth, David Brognon & Stéphanie Rollin, Ralston & Bau, Mélanie Buatois, Les M Studio, Pierre Dubourg, Øyvind Wyller, Vera & Kyte, Signe Solberg, Margit Seland.
