A ONE CHANNEL VIDEO MONITOR SCULPTURE
ALONGSIDE MARCEL BREUER KS 41
_ HOME UNIMPROV.
WARROBES is a collaborative project featuring the works of experimental filmmaker Ellinor Stigle and early mid-century furniture dealer Marlon Orr of Objects in General.
Taking its inspiration from the Bauhaus movement, where trans-disciplinary collaboration was the focus to generate new languages, culture categorizations and market formulas, WARROBES features a one-channel video monitor sculpture alongside a rare Marcel Breuer armoire piece from 1929 titled KS 41A.
The KS 41 armoire was produced by Desta. The piece was designed towards the end of Breuer’s European years and serves as a stunning example of the deep simplicity and true connection to function Breuer advocated. The KS 41 is significant in the sense of being one of a few custom orders performed by Breuer to personal clients in the late 20’s.
Stigle’s film piece entitled Warrobes is inspired by the Bauhaus dance performances lead by Oskar Schlemmer whose choreography explored the space and its relation to the body through geometric forms and mechanical rhythms. The film piece further investigates the emotional charge transforming the space through the performance of two individuals punching rolls in circular motion on an escalating drum beat.
Both works are unique edition and available for acquisition together as a Gesamtkunstwerk.
Stigle’s film piece Warrobes can also be presented as a one channel video installation and as a 3’27 linear version availlable for online release.
