Description

After having both participated in the Contemporary Design Market 2021, Pieter Bostoen and Gilles Mayk Navangi are joining forces for the 2022 edition. Driven and supported by Flanders Dc, this collaboration aims to promote exchange, dialogue, and cultural diversity. The objective is to confront different perceptions of design and thus open the way to new visual languages and artistic movements.

For this collaboration, Pieter and Mayk dug deep into their interests, motivations, and worldviews in order to come up with a project representative of their respective identities. From there on, the idea was born of making objects that honor the fauna and flora. The results are ceramic vessels symbolizing endangered animals. These objects are jars, totems, meditative sculptures, which advocate contemplation and benevolence towards the animal kingdom.

Through this project, they wish to draw attention to the tragic fate of certain animals due to the profit and exploitation of biodiversity. Virunga National Park is the richest protected area in Africa, home to more than a thousand species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, as well as one-third of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. A percentage of the profits from the sales of the DEARTH project will be donated to this organization which fights against war, poaching, and illegal activities in defense of animals.

 

The sculpture can be made to order. Please note that the color for an ordered piece will be different than the one displayed since each piece is unique. Please contact us for any inquiries.

About Antimaterie Visit Showroom →

Antimaterie is a Belgian studio that designs and produces handmade ceramics. The studio was founded in 2020 by Pieter Bostoen, a multi-talented creative with a background in interior design. Antimaterie is the creative offspring where we research the ancient craft of ceramics and how to translate this into a contemporary context. A unique design language can be recognized. Graphical and geometrical elements with a clear emphasis on craftsmanship and combining traditional and modern techniques. Our ceramic work has been exhibited on several occasions both domestically and abroad. The most recent project ‘Dekmantel’ was selected as a part of the Growth&Evolution International Jewelry Exhibition at Beijing Design Week in China and the Contemporary Design Market in Brussels.
