A multimedia art project and exhibition. The title is a made-up word in Danish, as the opposite of Brugskunst (which means applied arts, functional arts, or the art of the useable).
Built from collected wood from a local forest of Odense in collaboration with Mads Gronberg, used found objects from my then local area to create the dysfunctional object. The work becomes the opposite of perfectionism – a resistance and a protest – not only to the functionality of the object but also to the expectations of local design and implications of identity in a given place. The work is a chair but is not a chair, similarly we may relate to a specific identity but at the same time have no tangible identity at all.
