Telling Tales

I visited this exhibition last week at the V&A. The work was very different and particularly extravagant. Most of the designers were from the Netherlands and the work was very much craft-based, but also pushed the thought of it being art or design. I found the third section interesting ‘Heaven and Hell’ as it focused on our most recent obsession with mortality and the influence of Freudian thought which explains ‘our anxious state in troubled minds.’ Perhaps storytelling is particularly relevant today in helping us to disconnect from ordinary life and enter a world of enchantment and wonder.
