Alicia Vogel y Laia Amigó
UN-ORDINARY OBJECTS proposes an exhibition linked to the home, to everyday life and the functionality of objects. A reinterpretation of the everyday object and household furniture that aims to value their own functions, as well as the relationship (in itself) that is established between these objects and the subject.
Alícia Vogel and Laia Amigó are the digital native generation, the last millennials and, even so, when they represent the home, they select objects that are not at all technological: a clock with hands, a light with a plug...

Objects that could be dragging from the houses where they were born. No reference to technology. As if all the technological is understood and there is no need to mention it, because it is innate.
A curious vision of the reality that coexists, transgeneration is no longer a question of being digital or not, analog or not, but of which are the objects with which you identify yourself, which are the ones that turn a space into a home where to live, where to share life and personalize it, individualize it.
These pieces, produced from technical experimentation, break with the traditional materiality of objects. The fragility of ceramics is perfect to point out that the times that live in these homes are also ephemeral. The functionality of the pieces is not lost, but their composition is a provocation: what are homes made of? The process of experimentation has resulted in the production of pieces that invite us to rethink our environment.
Thanks to an almost sculptural language, the two young artists living in Barcelona resignify the spaces of the domestic environment and build pieces full of symbolism. Always hanging from a thread, without stable links and only the ideas that are transportable from one space to another, and at each stop a candle around which that nondescript space becomes the meeting point.
