Recompositions

Rejected, unwanted furniture forms the base of Recompositions, an exhibition at Falkenbergs museum by Swedish industrial designer Jenny Nordberg.

From a reversed value perspective, she sees these pieces of furniture as a supply of material. She takes them apart, and then uses them to create new objects with a new function and meaning.

These rejected objects can have a new life and become new artifacts through relocation, disassembly and redesign.
A pubic call was made before the start of the exhibition, asking people to donate unwanted pieces of furniture and objects that were no longer in use. Once those pieces arrived at the museum, Jenny Nordberg categorized them: tables became boards and carpets became textiles.
