Art & Collectible Design
The Future Perfect: Open & Closed
October 27, 2021 - December 15, 2021
Casa Perfect:
8 St. Lukes Place,
New York, NY 10014

The collectible design gallery enlists nine emerging Danish creatives to ascribe their own artistic sensibilities to one-of-a-kind boxes, highlighting both the beauty of construction and the possibility of the space inside. “The box is a poignant symbol of spaces as they’re opened and closed, and of the rigid conditions under which many artworks are made and presented,” says The Future Perfect director Laura Young, who curated the group show in partnership with the Danish Arts Foundation. Some highlights: Iben Høj’s box that utilizes natural fibers to create sheer soft surfaces, and Elly Glossop and Stine Mikkelsen’s confrontations of materiality by up cycling and engineering their own composites from crushed glass bead and marble, quartz sand, fish glue, porcelain, and volcanic glass fragments. —Ryan Waddoups
