WHEN INNOVATION MEETS ANCIENT

 

Curator: Oskar Zięta

Certain objects featured in the exhibition are 50,000 years old, yet we discovered them by looking ahead to the distant future. Excellent knowledge of the material is the first step towards discovering its capabilities, gaining confidence in it and producing extraordinary results. Each material has its story to tell. Copper is considered ancient material dating back to approx. 9,000 B.C. By using the innovative technology FiDU its story can take the unique form with a noble touch. Methods of production are also ancient; such is weaving that inspires the modern industry to replace silk yarns with resistible carbon fibre without compromising the softness and unique properties of its predecessor. The exhibition will show that 50,000-year-old objects are not museum artefacts but functional objects with a story to tell (and to apply) by today’s users, still open and continued.
