Marti Anson: La Botiga De L' Anson

Publisher Art Paper Editions

ISBN 9789490800529

Idea Code 16491

Catalan artist Martí Anson’s site-specific installation at Meubelgalerie Vynckier in Waregem, Belgium, does not simply show a number of pieces of furniture inspired by his father’s work. It is a “conceptual concept shop” reconstruction and a revival of a project he previously developed for the ‘Species of Spaces’ exhibition at the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). Anson’s father, Joaquim, designed and manufactured furniture in line with the modernist avant-garde using a method comparable to industrial kit production. He did not conceive of the objects as an artistic craft or as consumer goods, but as “constructions” that contributed to building a better, more social society.
