HIAP, British Council, Helsinki Design Week and Strelka
The Melting Platform

Anna Burlakova (RU), Luke Jones (UK) and Jérémy Gaudibert (FR/FI) present the outcomes of their research in the frame of this year’s HIAP Design Residency programme.

Concluding a three-year thematic cycle, the 2019 edition once more attends to the dimension of “material” as the common denominator in the simultaneous and multiple changes that transfigure the technological and ecological beddings of human societies worldwide.

Using tools of narrative speculation, collaborative design and live performance, the projects on show each dissect their material object into its web of logistic, speculative and sensual significances that appear, reconfigured in their observations, as options to the familiar ritual, protocol or “solution”.

Talk on 12 September 17.30.

The main venue of Helsinki Design Week, Erottaja 2, provides a multitude of events during the festival.

Open from 11 am to 7 pm every day except Monday, 9 September.
