The exhibition will feature founding members of Denamit group – Lucia Bartková (jewellery designer), Michaela Bednárová (textile designer), Simona Janišová (ceramics), Lenka Sršňová (fashion designer), Linda viková (ceramics) and their guests Katarina Czikorová (graphic designer), author of Denamit logo, Martina Slováková (author of the documentary of Michaela Bednárová`s project) and Jakub Gulyás (photographic cooperation in Lenka Srsnova´s project).
The topic of the exhibition (Tender about gender) arose from Denamit´s purely female occupancy, and each of the artists has seized it in their very own way. The result is a portfolio of five exclusive collections, five different interpretations of a single topic through five different media, all classified as belonging to a group of applied art.
One of the exhibition´s missions is to present creative and production processes. Photography and video documentation of these processes, presented in direct context with pieces of final art work, has become an equivalent part of the exhibition. The exposal of these processes helps a better understanding and brings the role of the author/designer closer to their auditory. The audience will get to know what is included in the price of a designer product and original artwork and can see the evolution of a particular piece of work from a sketch into the final product.
DDD accompanying events are: exhibition of designer and artist Patrik Illo in French Institute Gallery, as well as lectures and discussion, guided tour and open day in DDD artists´ studios. Lectures will introduce professionals active in the same areas as DDD founding artists, both in Slovakia as well as abroad. The objective is to inform the audience about hot topics and challenges of both Slovak and global design, and commercial and fine arts.
