Exhibition of Marcin Rusak, Nature of Things at Musée Horta, from 6/9 until 7/10/2018

Marlène Huissoud (FR) and Marcin Rusak (PL) used to share a studio in London until last year. They are both experimental designers sharing the same research and approach to natural materials with similar themes but different ways to translate them into their sculptural unique pieces or limited editions: furniture, lighting and wall installations, photography and drawings. While Huissoud is fascinated by the insect materials and incorporate them into her creative process like honeybee and silkworms, Rusak has developed his own flower and leaves infused resin, from waste flower to perishable materials.

The Random Collection features unique pieces in a multiple series of min 12 up to 20, including 1 to 4 A.P. The Random Collection reflects the philosophy and art direction of Spazio Nobile since 2016 by offering to the collectors a vision and appreciation of contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Through a curated selection and edition of objects, works on paper and photographs, the gallery highlights experimental art and design processes, in line with its quest for original pieces that can range from a functional object to an artwork. The continuous dialogue between the gallery and the designers, artists and photographers is enriched by the print and online magazine, TLmag_True Living of Art & Design that celebrates its 10 years anniversary in 2018-2019. The Random Collection offers a new kind of platform to the creatives for developing multiple series that keep their uniqueness thanks to their singular, poetic and innovative processes.

About Spazio Nobile

By opening Spazio Nobile in April 2016, in the dynamic and cosmopolitan Ixelles neighbourhood of Brussels (Belgium), Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for design and art history, initiating a dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Commissioning unique pieces, limited editions and installations that are both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensibility to everything nature and minerality, the gallery organises four to five exhibits each year, dedicated to both rising and established talents, without creating borders between the disciplines, the visual arts dialoguing with the fine arts.

À propos de Spazio Nobile

En ouvrant Spazio Nobile en avril 2016 dans le quartier très animé et cosmopolite d’Ixelles à Bruxelles (BE), Lise Coirier et Gian Giuseppe Simeone ont uni leurs passions pour la création et l’histoire de l’art en prenant le parti de faire dialoguer arts appliqués contemporains, design et photographie. En donnant l’impulsion à la création de pièces uniques, d’éditions limitées et d’installations à la fois expérimentales et artistiques, avec une sensibilité particulière à tout ce qui touche à la nature et à la minéralité, la galerie organise chaque année quatre à cinq expositions dédiées à des talents émergents ou déjà confirmés. Sans mettre de frontière entre les disciplines, les arts visuels côtoient les beaux-arts.
