Weissert + Grau / Germany

Weissert + Grau (Mia Grau & Andree Weissert): Atomteller + X Table. When Form Follows Fallacy. Decoding decoration. A series of 19 plates in traditional Delft blue, on which windmills of old have been replaced by their contemporary equivalent: each plate shows one of the 19 nuclear power plants in Germany. Playing with typologies and the tradition of German craftmanship, the plates are also meant as conversation pieces, provoking discussion on the ideas of Heimat, nostalgia, progress, technology and hybris, but also as a monument to fallacy and futility. At the Biennale Interieur the plates are displayed on another recent design by Andree Weissert, the X- Table - X being a very important sign for resistance in the German anti Atom movement. Daring the impossible, the X-Table is also the last of a long line of table studies., topped by a hand-colored concrete surface of just 8 mm thick.
