The FACTORY collection produced by ONOMA, The Cooperative of Artisans, Designers and Artists in Fiskars, will reflect on the creative potential of “the village as a factory”, look into historical and contemporary production processes and present new perspectives for design making, by combining experimental ideas and methods. FACTORY displays art & design pieces from over 40 artists from Finland and abroad. FACTORY examines the culture of fabrication trough the point of view of design, art and handicrafts.
FACTORY is a multidisciplinary exhibition that reveals the diverse roles of modern factories. In the summer 2019, more than forty artists and collaborations bring their own vision about the meaning of a factory for arts and production today. The exhibition is curated by Anniina Koivu.
The exhibition combines traditional design and crafts with surprising collaborations between art and technology. The theme of a factory is tackled through different art forms and techniques. How does a craftsman, a carpenter or an industrial manufacturer comprise the essence of factories? What is a modern factory like? Can slowly hand made quality be born in a factory environment?
