In Huysman's iconic novel Against Nature, a decadent aristocrat indulges his taste for luxury and excess, gorging his aesthetic appetites with exotic jewels, rich perfumes and sensual experiences.
Taking this as a cue, the third Futurecity-curated exhibition at the Gallery at Foyles showcases the work of eleven leading makers/designers:
- Shaun Leane
- Timorous Beasties
- Fabien Cappello
- Tom Price
- Studio Glithero
- Studio Swine
- Jason Marks
- Leigh Cameron
- Emma Yeo (see image)
- Peter Saville for Dovecot Studios
- Alice Cicolini
Co-curated by Alice Cicolini, designer, commissioner and published author; and Mark Davy, Founder of Futurecity, this highly unconventional exhibition showcases master craftmanship and design structured through the commissioning of a unique collaboration with sensory branding agency Vetyver.
