The MINDCRAFT exhibitions are organized by the Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Agency for Culture. Exhibition design and curation by Italo-Danish designers GamFratesi, which selected 14 new works of 19 of the most important creative figures of Denmark.
The theme of the 2015 Mindcraft the two designers have chosen ‘ In Between ‘ which reflects the fact that Danish craftspeople and designers work in a field of tension in between mind and craft.
This exhibition covers the full range, including developed ideas, conceptual qualities and sublime artistic technical accomplishments, coupled with a unique understanding of material.
These are housed inside black metal cages on top of the mirrored floor or hung from temporary supports in the covered walkways that wrap around the space.
Reflection is the keyword of the curatorship of GamFratesi: …. “ Reflection because the Court of the Faculty of theology was used by monks to reflect, but mainly because it is the representation of our intervention in this beautiful space, completely covered with mirrors. Reflection between the story and the work, between the modernity of the exhibits and the historicity of the place ” ….. Enrico Fratesi.
