Lisbon, Portugal, December 2011. From the 24th of February to the
25th March 2012, Fabrica Features Lisbon will present Vera, Chapter
One, a multi-disciplinary show evolving around a fictional character.
Orchestrated by Kirsty Minns (KM), one of the young designers
hosted at Fabrica, and French designer Érika Muller (ÉM). This first
chapter, was launched during the London Design Festival in
September 2011 and is part of an on-going project.

Exploring a literacy approach to design, this exhibition will show a
surprising and eclectic body of work, including product design,
illustration, graphics and olfactory design, by some emerging
international talent.

Stepping away from the mass-market design approach which mainly
produces for the average and standard end-consumer, the initial
thinking process behind each of these pieces is a response to one
individual. And that individual is Vera. Vera is a fictional character
based on a series of photographs from a girl’s family found a few
years ago in a second hand shop in Brighton. This group of artists
and designers have been commissioned to respond to one image
from the series in order to create the first chapter of Vera’s fictive
and collaborative biography.

Vera’s material and sensorial world is brought into reality through this
speculative body of work. The exhibition room is her intimate space
into which the visitor is invited to discover an original series of
suppositional artifacts.
