Furniture project for LevArt

Trond Nicholas Perry and Agata Sander

The boundaries between art and design are getting more and more blurred. I read an article lately stating that today it is not the object itself, but rather its economical functionality that determines its categorisation. The most common distinction (between art and design) is that design is more accessible because it is usable and deals with how you live your life. I think it is very possible to transcend these values into storytelling and poetry.’ (Trond Nicholas Perry, in an interview in Maag magazine)

Perry and Sander’s furniture project was designed specifically for LevArt. On the occasion of the duo’s first visit and research in LevangerLevArt invited artist and editor of Maag magazine, Lisa Stålspets, to lead a conversation with the artist and architectSee video of the conversation below.

Perry works in different media, using a variety of materials. His work conveys a social aspect as well as a strong poetical presence, frequently in the form of sculptures or objects that explore the boundaries between art and design. Perry holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. He has participated in several exhibitions, most recently ‘M3-Unblock’ – Warsaw public space, and ‘Rooted Design for Routed Living – alternative design strategies,’ Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw.
