1986 , SWE

The absurdly humorous audio installation by Emilie Bergmark puts us into an imaginary gallery environment, where a Kettle 9091 is nervously experiencing her show debut. This icon of world design was born in 1982 when Richard Sapper created her for Alessi. She therefore belongs to the millennials and is even a typical representative of this generation. She works in a stylish café at the International Artistic Orbital Station, circling around the Earth, where works on her own art after work. Her monologue, revealing a light discontent with the show, can be heard by visitors comfortably sitting on a sofa in the middle of exposed exhibits. / mf
