Marseille Exhibition UNKNOWN OBJECT – For the person who brought this object to the transformation connects a lot of bad memories, mistakes, stress and unclear ownership to this object and wished the object to disappear, to change its identity or become invisible. Inspired by the Bauhaus student Gertrud Arndts masked portraits the object was masked and its identity hidden. The mask covers the buried object and therefore its identity – almost, until you find the hidden peephole. WATER BOTTLE – Through the water bottle brought that is used individually only by the owner we had a talk about the usage of PET and global access to water. Inspired by the idea of collectivism, that was promoted in early Israel by the Bauhaus architect Arieh Sharon amongst others, we transformed the object into a bottle which could be used by many different family members. UN AVION EN FEUILLE D’ETAIN- The metal airplane was taken from an exhibition opening and bonded the owner and her boyfriend through the collective act of stealing and doing something forbidden together. Discussing about ownership and collectivism, applied by the Bauhaus and Israeli architect Arieh Sharon, the plane was turned into many small planes that could be spread, shared and their ownership distorted. HAIRBRUSH – The hairbrush was brought to the transformation by the owner that originally took it from her mother. For her it stands for transmission between two generations. After reflecting about Bauhaus and the idea of modular systems, that students like Alma Siedhoff Busher applied in their practice, we modified the hair brush into modules that became and could still transform into different brushes for several uses, such as toothbrush, hairbrush, shaving brush, paint brush, washing-up brush, bottle brush and many more. BRA – The participant brought a bra that she used sometimes without ever feeling comfortable in it our being convinced of its functionality. During the workshop, the identity of the object has changed by applying Getrud Arndt creative philosophy to the transformation process. Considered as a pioneer of female self-portraiture, Arndt developed several of her works around the use of masks and costumes, allowing her to change her identity and to created playful reinterpretations of feminine tropes such as the widow, socialite, and a little girl. During the transformation the female object became a small pocket that could hold other things rather than women’s body.
