Two Copenhageners joined forces.
“The Perfect Home” is a further development – or refinement – of the installation exhibited at northmodern in 2015. Hagedornhagen continues to occupy themselves with still life as a form of expression, although this time they worked with a more current universe as their starting point – a universe celebrating simplicity and the everyday life. Therefore, they have worked with a simple idiom reflecting something well known, but in a way that allows the viewer to experience color, shape and function all over again.
The art installation includes six photos divided into two photo series. The two photographers have found their inspiration in the 1980’s colors and choice of subject and in the Danish artist Vilhelm Lundstrøm, who is known for his Cubist studies of everyday objects in strong colors. The idea behind the installation is to create a unique experience of something well-known in an unusual setting.
Cofounder of Hagedornhagen, Anders Morell elaborates on the collaboration with Royal Copenhagen:
“Royal Copenhagen’s products are like good friends. We know them, we know the brand and we know the different porcelain sets represent more than high quality and beautiful craftsmanship – many people also have an emotional connection to this unique porcelain. At the same time we have had the opportunity to play with and create some completely unique setups because Royal Copenhagen’s assortment is so versatile and counts so many individual components.”
