From September 2 - October 29, Studio Mieke Meijer exhibits at Onomatopee in Eindhoven.
The geometry, the structure, the materiality, the texture, the finishing; all contest the reciprocity of construction and detail through the rules of the properties themselves. Studio Mieke Meijer (Mieke Meijer and Roy Letterlé) construct aesthetics with the utmost necessity. With industrial knowledge, they return to a more manual craft in order to accommodate all the facets of their work. As they move closer, things get more specific. As man takes control in the anthropocene, do we actually get closer to an existential quality?
Perspective, scale and proportionality are key to the work of Studio Mieke Meijer. In the exhibition at Onomatopee, its design will release different perspectives onto the work, stimulating an analytical disposition to trigger your awareness of the properties concerned. Experience and information are in a constant loop with one-another.
This exceptional exhibition, inspired by the practice of the Studio, triggered a further, more abstract and critical exploring of the construction of aesthetics on the fracture of architecture and interior design, the interior object as a research proposition and the fundamental case of aesthetic approximation. The visual fabrication of aesthetics will be targeted both in the graphic transfer of the photographed work in the publication as well as in the accompanying texts.
