Beyond Repair (2014)

Keywords: repair, fabulation, art nouveau, Alf Wallander, Emile Gallé, Waldemar Lindström

Beyond Repair started as an investigation in material and technological culture, as well as exploring the issue of value (emotional, material, economical & cultural) of an artifact both in a museum and in an everyday context: when is an object beyond repair? How to intervene upon it so that it can benefit its user/viewer again? An object is also made of memories conferred upon it by society or by an owner, it has a power as a storyteller that transcends its functionality.
