What came out of the EX OVO this year?
Endowment Fund VENTURE in cooperation with the internet magazine FEMME.sk, the Academy of fine arts and design and the secondary arts schools prepared a second edition of the competition for design Easter eggs of the year 2012 with the name EX OVO. The winning and the most interesting works are presented in Design Studio ÚĽUV at Dobrovičova 13. The exhibition opened on Thursday 8 March at 18.00.
"Easter eggs, as one of the customary tradition, were a special form of folk art. Besides being the symbol of sun, spring, health fertility and the renewal of life, it has also an artistic and visual function, "says Ingrid Abrahamfyová, curator of the exhibition.
Authors worked with both traditional and atypical materials. Eggs were used as merely a starting point in some cases. They suddenly transform into a flower bouquet, lamp or jewellery.
The competition EX OVO was meant for professional designers, artists and students of artistic schools. Only products from traditional chicken, duck or goose eggs were taken into the competition.
The exhibition EX OVO is to be seen in Design Studion ÚĽUV, Dobrovičova 13 in Bratislava, from 8th March until to 4th May 2012.
