Vernissage: Species of the Space - Hopscotch Reading Room - Berlin

Hopscotch is delighted to announce a weekend long exhibition by Yasmin Bawa. Yasmin created our elegant and highly appreciated bar and now we showcase an installation of her latest work diving into the possibilities of hemp as a natural alternative to concrete. Opening and Zine launch // 7th September, 6-9pmExhibition // 8th-9th September 12-6pm___Species of the Space IV The species in this series are born from an exploration into hemp-crete, a term for the basic mixture of hemp shiv, clay and lime binder. Together, they tell a story of strength, renewability and versatility; fusing traditions of primitive and historical technologies to contemporary ideas for sustainability. //Yasmin Bawa is a designer of objects, furniture and spaces. She seeks to challenge our perception of everyday materials and how we interact with objects. The ‘Species of the Space’ series focuses on design in terms of objects in a series. The project is about a careful analysis of the user and object as equal entities. Rather than a pressure for permanence, the species encourage a relationship with the user. Instead of being placed in the corner and forgotten about, they promote communication through shared routines, habits and intimate moments.www.yasminbawa.com
