Jerszy Seymour

The Universe Wants to Play Exhibition
Posted by Gestalten—04/2013

Berlin-born product designer and artist Jerszy Seymour creates an environment that seems to give an insight into another person's brain. A work consequently entitled Brain Cave Spaceship and the video Thank God Hip Hop, Pop Art And (Your) Desire Are Back can now be seen at Galerie Crone's ongoing exhibition: The Universe Wants to Play

The show witnesses an artistic cosmos of disengaged objects, offering a place for battling demons, making love to the future, and shouting at the present. Seymour likes to find utopia without falling for false promises. As he says in a Gestalten Video, "I like to play, I like to love, to climb the mountain of an idea and fall into the river on the way." He is surely a designer with a strong theoretical basis who, in case of doubt, always opts for the more challenging alternative.

As a course director at the Dirty Art Department of Amsterdam's Sandberg Institute, Seymour passes on his ideas concerning autonomous design and on how to live. He provides his students with a space for all possible thought or utopian realizations in the same way as he invites the audience of his exhibitions to get engaged with what is possible within the setting.

Jerszy Seymour's work has been featured in Pretty Ugly, Let's Go Out!, Fragiles and Desire.
