Janos Korban and Stefanie Flaubert bring their metal sculptures to Canberra’s Gallery of Australian Design.
April 2nd, 2012
Operating out of their studio and workshop in Sydney’s St Peters, Korban/Flaubert combine design and sculpture to create works that explore ideas of energy and motion.
“Metal is our material; we love its malleable workable qualities, its muscular qualities but also its liquid behaviour with light,” Stefanie Flaubert told Indesignlive late last year.
For the next 3 weeks, the duo’s work will be on display at Canberra’s Gallery of Australian Design.
This exhibition of their most recent creations is a perfect example of their fascination with metal – its lustre, the potential of its form to create objects with an inherent sense of fluidity and movement.
New works ’volatile 1’, ’volatile 2’ and ’volatile 3’ suggest motion and unpredictability, changing form as the viewer shifts position.
The compact geometries of ’covert’, ’involute’ and ’tetrasphere’ explore surface, continuity and balance.
Korban/Flaubert’s metal screens are also on display at GAD, demonstrating the duo’s love of pattern and repetition in form.
“We have always been interested in the logic and interconnectedness of systems and patterns in the world,” said Flaubert. New additions to the collection explore these ideas further by embracing a chunkier graphic scale.
Korban/Flaubert: Metal/Work is on at Canberra’s Gallery of Australian Design (GAD) until 28 April 2012.
