Visual communication for an exhibition by the Master Space and Communication HEAD — Genève during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano 2019. Based on the project of the students: Helena Bosch Vidal, Jeanne Pasquet, Seda Türk and Eleonora Pizzini.

Expanding upon the graduation project of Eleonora Pizzini the students and alumni of MA Space & Communication, HEAD-Genève, present Congress of Spoons. Congress of Spoons is a demonstration of the narrative power of set design in exhibitions. Through the creation of a series of contextualising cabinets, installations, performances and devices for the very same object, a spoon, the exhibition investigates the obsessive, uncomfortable and shifting role of objects and our relationships with them. By exploring the ways in which different modes of exhibition reveal our agency in these object-human relationships, it questions our anthropocentric approach and exposes the potential otherness of the object itself.
