Little Gestalten recommended on People of Print.
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.
