Trans|Form by Karen Chekerdjian
Carwan Gallery proudly presented a solo exhibition of the Lebanese designer Karen Chekerdjian at Design Miami/ Basel.
Trans|Form is a collection of limited-edition objects inspired by the idea of metamorphose of functions: four collections of transformed and transforming objects.
Each individual piece, restructured and reformed by hand, bears the imprint of a multitude of gestures, lived experiences and narratives, evoked with every interaction and following transformation.
Carwan Gallery has commissioned many works to Karen in the past four years and exhibited her work in more than ten international art and design fairs as well as curated exhibitions.

" Si fa notare per l’armonia dell’insieme, lo stand della galleria libanese Carwan che mette in scena la personale 'Trans|Form' di Karen Chekerdjian : un percorso tra i lavori di decenni che la designer ha intrapreso rileggendo progetti già compiuti e presentandone diverse possibili trasformazioni, da oggetti facilmente decifrabili a elementi più ibridi e volutamente indecisi, che diventano architetture per interni ".
