Description

Jarrones de la Hostia (“Fucking Awesome Vases” would be the closest translation for this) is a series of (almost) unbreakable vases made from foam and coated with a layer of flexible polyurethane.

This series challenges ideas that are often taken too seriously. By making an art piece that is meant to be kicked, the object transcends the materiality to become a performative prop, not to be contemplated, but to play with it.

They are Fucking Awesome Vases because you can kick them! They are durable, bounce, and you can fit your head inside!

If you a not too daring, you can just fill them with flowers and water.

Joel is an inactive member of Pokemon’s generation, junk food expert, philosophy lover, and designer. Studied Contextual Design MA at the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work presents itself as something that is primary and very humane. He challenges ideas that are often taken too seriously, and proposing while looking for a new kind of value: not the value of eternal truths or wisdom, but rather the value of temporary fun.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
