Alien Autopsy

November 15th, 2019

– An installation by Massproductions and Åsa Stenerhag

 

Massproductions invited the artist Åsa Stenerhag to collaborate on their installation ”Alien Autopsy” which opens on 14 November 2019 at the Massproductions showroom in Stockholm, with a press breakfast followed by a celebratory party. The installation was created in conjunction with the launch of the new Landa table system.

 

The new Landa table’s design is based on two parallel steel beams, allowing for an exceptionally long span between the leg pairs. Space has been one of the recurring concepts in its development, in the form of the significant and comfortable voids created under long table tops, and also in the inspiration behind its appearance. When Massproduction’s designer Chris Martin designed Landa’s characteristic angled table legs he was inspired by NASA’s lunar module.

 

In the installation, the Landa table presents a series of stoneware sculptures by artist Åsa Stenerhag in prominent organic forms and textures. The installation title ”Alien Autopsy” is a nod to a controversial short film by Englishman Ray Santillis from 1995.

 

The sculptures have been baked once after which the ceramic still has the ability to soak up color. Every sculpture has then been stained by less traditional methods, such as gouache, shoe polish and linseed oil.

 

”My work usually starts with a feeling, an energy and desire that then comes down to material, surface and shape until it becomes a whole. It is also about being fully present in what I do. Clay is a living material and must be taken care of in different ways throughout all stages of the drying process. It is a constant collaboration between me and the clay. For me the process is as important as the result. That’s what drives me” says Stenerhag.

 

The installation Alien Autopsy takes place in Massproductions’ showroom between 14-28 November at Hammaryby Allé 51 in Stockholm.

Press contact

”It started with a request to do something in connection with the launch of Landa. The name of the installation challenged and helped me to further develop the design language. It’s like lighting a spark. When parameters are set, ideas are triggered. The idea started from the long table. How we could tell a story, create a feeling, an exciting one, unified together. For me, creation is primarily about intuitive work though also about channeling a feeling. In this case, it is a life energy, which is shaping and explore itself. Both on the inside and the outside”
