Beauty and the Act of Narrating Material Aesthetics (2022)

Maria Høgh-Mikkelsen

About this exposition

I have always been very engaged in the phenomenon of beauty. Not in the sense of being pretty, but beauty as that special ambience certain objects or spaces or even humans can have. I wonder and puzzle with questions like: What makes something beautiful? Can one practise the creation of beauty? How do I create beauty? Is the creation of beauty a matter of talent? Or a matter of professional culture? So, I am not only absorbed in the phenomenon of beauty itself but also in the act of beauty-creation. And in how other people experience the beauty I have created. Where other people see only bricks and numbers, I have always seen patterns in both brick walls and phone numbers. So, if other people don’t see what I see, how do I then communicate with them in objects and spaces? These are some of the questions I set out to answer in the artistic research project, I call Narrating Material Aesthetics. With the project I want to explore how we as designers embed stories and meaning in the objects we create.
