  • Spoons - the most elementary cultural object worldwide - transformed into art
  • Gabi Veit explores the possibilities of design
Full Description

In her monograph Creatura | Geschöpf, the Bozen-born artist Gabi Veit takes an artistic stance on one of the most elementary cultural objects in the world: the spoon. From basic geometric simplicity - the handle as a line and the bowl as a circle - she develops an overwhelming variety of metal objects that both raise and answer questions. Who gives and who receives, what can be taken and be taken from? It is a play on the symbolism of abundance and emptiness. Each metal object is an expression of inexhaustible imagination and a playful engagement with the possibilities of design. The silver spoons have a head and a body, are handle and leg. They are blossom, fruit and leaf. They march to a different tune and speak to one another, as well as to the beholder and the user. Each spoon tells a story.

Text in English, German and Italian.
