If This Then That (2015)
Material study developed for the exhibition of Dutch Invertuals “Body Language” during the Salone Del Mobile 2015. The piece consists of objects that NOMAN has assembled and found along the way. Through dialogue, the materials alter and lose their original reference. Instead, they become gateways to new worlds without restrictions, fear and the paralyzing grip of functionality.
The collages of material are held together by bondage like rope structures or balanced by rocks.
