Modern industrial design today has become not only an important component of the life of society, but at the same time it is looking to the future, capturing all new areas of application. He became a cultural seismograph, which can predict the future of mankind. The first in Moscow exhibition of industrial design “Open Spaces” will be devoted to this topic, which will include graduates of the famous Bezalel Academy of Arts (Tel Aviv), the Israeli National Academy of Arts, created in the last few years.
On December 25, 2018 in Moscow, the Nativ Israeli Cultural Center at the Embassy of the State of Israel in the Russian Federation and the Embassy of the State of Israel in the Russian Federation will open for the wide audience the Open Spaces exhibition of the best graduates of the Bezalel Academy, who will tell about the mutual influence of technology and society how the development of industrial design affect our lives.
Yana Agmon, Head of the Nativ Representative Office in the Russian Federation, the Republic of Belarus and the Baltic States, noted that: “The Nativ Israeli Cultural Center is very pleased to be able to acquaint the public with different facets of modern Israel. In December, we opened an exhibition of contemporary Israeli artists and continue the series of shows of contemporary Israeli culture with an exhibition of industrial design from the best graduates of the Bezalel Academy.
Christina Krasnyanskaya, co-curator of the exhibition, founder and owner of the Heritage gallery, stressed the importance of the project for Russia: “Today it is impossible to overestimate the interest in industrial design. After all, it shows our future habitat. Bright and innovative works of young and talented graduates of the Bezalel Academy give the Russian audience a unique opportunity to see what the world will be like tomorrow. ”
The main idea of the exhibition is to reflect the space of ideas and tasks, in which there is a modern industrial design, to outline its conceptual “field” - changeable and sharply responsive to the demands of the time, constantly expanding its boundaries. And it only depends on the talent of the designer whether he will carry only a utilitarian sense - to be comfortable and comfortable or to acquire an artistic “message”.
The exposition of 30 works will include five sections: “Ordinary life”, “Environment”, “Culture and education”, “Innovations”, “Local cultures”. In “Ordinary Life” you will see furniture and design items for daily use. Sri Señora’s “Rotating Surface” project explores the technology for producing ceramic dishes on a jigger (a type of pottery wheel). Using simple and unexpected means, the author has created a series of ceramics that argues and echoes traditional methods of dishware manufacturing.
"Environment" will make objects for public places, as well as projects related to energy and the environment. For example, the Niva Cohen project “Jioco. Carpet game ”, which combined the utility of the subject and an innovative approach to children’s play. A scaly carpet made of felt and upholstery fabrics is both a toy for the development of the child and a harmonious part of the interior.
The “Culture and Education” section will show ideas for designers for fun and leisure. The project “Neo Fruit. Fruits of the future ”Meydana Levy is an artificial fruit created by innovative technology, thanks to which they contain all the necessary nutrients in the right proportions. The shape and texture of the "fruits of the future" are designed not only to satisfy hunger, but also to deliver aesthetic pleasure.
Advanced technologies in food, transport and communications will be located in the "Innovations" section. For example, the “Pack in a new way” high-capacity suitcase by Eli Spivak. The author has developed a compact suitcase that allows you to take with you 50% more than usual and not exceeding the size of hand luggage. The mini-suitcase is equipped with a vacuum compartment that removes excess air from things using the built-in pump.
The section "Local Cultures" is materials, crafts, traditions, local productions. One of the projects in this section is “Pirouette” by Adar Neaman, which will show the pointes of a new generation, made of elastomeric material in combination with textiles, tailored to the individual characteristics of dancers on a 3D printer. This shoe perfectly supports the feet and minimizes injuries.
Industrial design works at the intersection of consumption and art, which means that part of the exhibits will remain an art object, but the other will definitely become part of our life. And this will happen in the very near future.
The BETSELEL Academy of Arts and Design was founded in 1906 in Jerusalem by the Jewish artist Boris Schatz (born in Kaunas, Lithuania), he was also one of the founders of the Bulgarian National Academy of Arts in Sofia.
