2016 is a milestone in the history of the Biennale Interieur. It is our 25th edition – a cause for celebration! To ensure that our festive edition runs smoothly we approached the architecture firm OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen. They partnered with visual artist Richard Venlet and graphic designer Joris Kritis and together conceived the theme for this edition, ‘SILVER LINING – INTERIORS’, and its programme. In doing this they pay homage to the 25th silver edition of the Biennale Interieur. The subtitle ‘INTERIORS’ demonstrates the event’s potential to address the possibilities of the ‘designed space’.
Central to INTERIORS, installations that will be spread over various halls, is the idea that furniture and objects are not isolated items; they are always part of the organised space. With INTERIORS, the curators will attempt to offer a new understanding of objects in their context instead of the objects being consumed as autonomous trophies. We spend most of our lives in designed environments surrounded by objects, but are they sufficiently appreciated as part of a wider whole?
