Design Miami 2009: VIVID Gallery with Farm by Studio Job

VIVID Gallery, Design Miami, Booth #19

Farm by Studio Job

December 2 - 5 december, 2009

December 1: Collector's Preview / Vernissage

For the 4th time the VIVID Gallery in Rotterdam will be joining the Design Miami fair and presents in Miami, next week, the complete installation of Studio Job’s Farm. This presentation, in conjunction with the Zuiderzee Museum, will be the first time to be seen in the United States. The Farm consists of 30 objects crafted from rosewood, bronze, leather and glass, each in an edition of 6 pieces.

Farm is a tribute to a perfect country life – a fictive farmer and his wife living in an ignorant and happy scenery. Far away from the fear that surrounds everyday life, the Farm can be seen as a perfect hallucination. The series has been added to the permanent collection of the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen.

Studio Job's body of work stretches to the horizon of the field with unorthodox installations, collections and unique objects. Denying functionalism, while embracing sculptural aspects of the object, the works are historical, narrative, intelligent and perfectly manufactured.
