This Thursday the 28th of March 2013, the very talented designer/curator/journalist Matylda Krzykowski will be giving a guest talk at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. I’ve known Matylda since my time studying and living in Holland and I’m very happy to host this presentation of her work during her brief visit to Sydney. Her cross-disciplinary practice is exceptional so its worth checking out the links below the following information about her talk:
BUREAU MATYLDA KRZYKOWSKI – TRANSDISCIPLINARY PRACTICE
>>The initiator, curator and designer Matylda Krzykowski is primarily interested in design as a vehicle for communication and content distribution, particularly in connection with the designers themselves. She creates a variety of projects in which she emphasises personality and aesthetics, based on the moment of experience.>>
For the last half decade Krzykowski has been active in the European design scene as a curator, journalist and designer. Her accomplishments include curation and documentation for many design festivals: including co-founder of Depot Basel, scenographer for the Design Biennale Liege 2012 and project manager for The Machine – Designing a New Industrial Revolution. On her website she has interviewed dozens of designers and producers from all around the world including Martino Gamper, Murray Moss, Gijs Bakker and the Bouroullec brothers. An example of her innovative cross-disciplinary approach is her recent project Personal Content (with Cristoph Sagel), where she photographed designers with their projects on a stage within their studios – drawing relationships between personalities, space, objects and objectives.
