It may sound strange but exhibitions featuring furniture design is usually a rare sight in Nordic art galleries.
Amy Hunting, the product designer behind the project “Faithful copy,” studied in the departement of furniture and room design at Danmarks Designskole. In this exhibition, she displays drawings, objects and handmade furnitures.
Gudrun Eidsvik, the manager director of RAM Gallery, kindly guided us through Amy Hunting’s exhibition. She told us the story behind the drawings hanging on the walls, were the motive was taken from a black & white photography of parents with three children, sitting on a bike. According to Eidsvik, Hunting drew about one picture every day for 50 days. In the end of the series, the spectator can sense the artist´s tiredness with each repetition — as the picture becomes more simple and basic.
