Exhibition - THE CABINET, Flat Pack

Location: Östersund city
Category: Exhibits

The CABINET at Busstorget shows the exhibition Flat Pack by Gerbrand Burger.

About the exhibition:
The flat and square conditions of The Cabinet (SKÅPET) led to the idea to exhibit the parts for a sculpture as they were shipped; packed flat like Ikea furniture. This idea resulted in a composition of 12 elements made of alder wood, that are cut to form three faces of an open cube. All the parts are there to be unpacked and assembled in the mind of the viewer.

Gerbrand Burger is a visual artist, mainly making sculptures and site-specific interventions that are situated simultaneously in the domains of visual arts, architecture and design. Burger works process-driven, where materiality and craftsmanship are the common thread. He investigates the surface of architectural volumes, shapes and spaces. Through interventions in material and space, often playing with scale and dimension, Burger examines the boundaries between art and design, aesthetic and functional, traditional and industrial, and the false duality of nature and culture. As a result the work shows elements of traditional crafts, modernism and contemporary design. Burger approaches different aspects that are involved in his work and life as one integrated whole. From cutting trees, making sculptures, to designing and building his own studio and house.
Gerbrand Burger is based in Amsterdam.
