Anne Fabricius Møller’s first class trash: Street Print

Vinçon is exhibiting Danish designer Anne Fabricius Møller's Street Print designs, made for MindCraft14 (previously showcased in Milan). Street Print is a 1.5 x 10 metre length of cotton printed with objects found in the street (some have been run over, coarse and filthy, but their imprints are remarkably poetic and delicate). The fine quality of the fabric strikes a contrast to the coarse grey asphalt where they were found. The prints are reproduced in a composition along a central axis and a certain degree of pattern symmetry around it. The composition was inspired by English etchings from the 1600s depicting natural objects in more or less symmetrical compositions.

Imagined in 1917 by British artist Norman Wilkinson, the very Op-art Dazzle patterns meant to disrupt the observer's perception of a subject. Used in American and British Navies at the end of World War I and a little bit during World War II, the enormous floating optical illusions disappeared with the invention of the radar.
