Description

Since the Industrial Revolution, ignorance and negligence have generated overloaded landfills in our throw-away culture. Metals are crucial to our world, and, unfortunately, a non-renewable resource. “Ignorance is Bliss” is an ongoing project about reincorporating the value of metal waste by applying it as a pigment from industries such as drinking water supply and soil remediation companies into new valuable products and methods. The colors are retrieved purely by using pigments from waste. In this project, surprisingly, the more contaminated the raw material, the more vibrant the designed objects are.

Each piece is hand-crafted and fired in a unique reduction gas oven, comes with its own charming irregularities. All ceramic pieces are food safe.

About the designer


Agne Kucerenkaite is a material designer from Vilnius, Lithuania, who graduated in Design Academy Eindhoven and currently based in the Netherlands. Agne enjoys working with raw materials, transforming them into valuable products, methods, and systems, seeking interaction between design, society, industry, and environment. Her design process is characterized by in-depth research, experimental approach, and hands-on practice, motivated by historical and sociocultural contexts. Technical investigation of seemingly unattractive and industrially driven processes that she finds to be the most interesting source of unexpected links and associations, drive her design work.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
