Does talent expand and contract according to the space it works in?

During Dutch Design Week 2017, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie invited curator Jules van den Langenberg to make an exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum. Under the title ‘In No Particular Order’, nine installations reflected on the design practices of designers, architects and artists who received the Talent Development grant last year. Studio Anne Dessing made one of these installations, reflecting on the habitat of talent. The Talent Development Grant recipients were asked to submit descriptions and floor plans of their ideal workspace. An analysis of these contributions were displayed on a curtain. Recalling a construction drawing, the curtain’s folds connect drawings to form new hybrid spaces.
