PROCESS: Repurposed ashes and kiln slag from BOFA waste-to-energy plant, wedge into recycled clay. The deforming shape is made by gradually lowering the melting point of the clay, meaning that at the top its pure clay and at the bottom its transcending into being glass. The piece is then covered in a thick layer of white glaze and fired to 1260 °C. The frame is welded and coated with green spray-paint.

The Wasteland Project is nonfinite project in which Annelie Grimwade Olofsson collect and experiment with industrial byproducts and waste materials through a combined process of theoretical research, applied experimentation and artistic narration, in the creation of objects, which challenges our perception of material value and the human role as consumer.

Since the industrialisation of human society, humankind has become a geological force to be recon with, evidently capable to rival those of Earths own systems. As the global population increases so does the consumption of goods, and the creation of waste, which threatens earths ecosystems and by default our own existence.

The objects can be seen as material manifestations, unlike theoretical works that discuss but do not create Anthropocene objects.

About the designer

Annelie Grimwade Olofsson

Annelie Grimwade Olofsson (1991) is exploring the correlation of industry, society, and environment from a material point of view, working on the intersection of art, design, and activism. She uses applied experimentation and to elicit impacting experiences and imagine future possibilities, contemplating environmental and social issues in the aim of fostering human relation to Earth. The primary objective of her projects is to spread knowledge, create awareness, and challenge rigid belief systems regarding value, and how it’s interlinked with materials, the economy and political agendas.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
