Intrigue Collection | Eric von Robertson
Founder Eric von Robertson is an artist, traveler and collector of artifacts, who gained his Masters in Fine Arts from Amsterdam’s Sandberg Institute in 2008. To extend his interests in nomadic art, textiles and early modernist design, in 2012 he established the Intrigue Collection. This collection specializes in trading the finest vintage Berber tribal carpets and Dutch Art Deco glass and ceramics.
At OBJECT 2018 Eric will present a series of ‘Extrusion’ prototype drawings in relation to a constellation of objects from the Intrigue Collection. The installation blurs the boundaries between display design, contemporary art, and artifacts. As a visual constellation, this installation opens up a poetic dialogue around art, design, interior space, and the human relationship with collecting and making objects.
