IDE TO POLAND
POSTSCRIPT PARIS

October 18th 2021

We have been back in the art life now for two weeks since the IDE TO POLAND expedition concluded with the display of prototypes made in situ. The intensity of this roadshow deserves a bit of reflection when you unpack your bags and start anew with other projects and post-expedition follow-up.

Happy to report the objects you see here are all now safe and sound in the Paris IDE Showroom, next to their cousins from IDE TO PUGLIA from the pre-Covid period in 2019. I am curious to see them all again in this new space, later this week on wooden shelves behind tall glass sliding doors. You can easily imagine them dancing to different rhythms when no one is looking.

These last photographs reveal moments that meant something to me. The finishing touches made by Zhuo Qi on the vase opening of Mathilde Bretillot’s highly original golden apple stopper atop a pale ceramic body gave moments of glee as he delicately filed the thin neck. The childlike pieces from the “Game of the Goose and the Apple” which was the intermission for the special dinner created by Epoka Restaurant. Puzzle pieces lined up in three groups almost like cookies makes their originality even more dynamic.

Spindly grey snaking objects of Goliath Dyevre that look like they might have been pulled from a prehistoric archaeological site someplace, not conjured last month in Warsaw. His childlike fascination with things that don’t fit together, with jagged edges that could hurt or keep hands away is hilarious. The group of objects from a Mad Hatter’s breakfast set perhaps behind the elegant and refined bowl with a small hole in its side.

Things that have holes in the wrong places, or flop over deliberately or just feel handmade and slightly unusual; this is the through line for an IDE International Expeditions. Unearthing the non-every-day form. Sliding a bit of whimsy or skating around the unknown edges of “design”. Here is the secret of the innocence and newness married to a way of making that is preceding it by centuries. The moment now is an accumulation and how you catch this speeding information on gossamer invisible waves. That is what makes up IDE. How you catch the contemporary in the past.
