Across a range of functional objects, the Brooklyn-based Stout has become one of the most talked about designers of her generation. Whether working within the functional logic of lighting, seating, or shelving, or with mirrored or textile surfaces, Stout recasts the domestic world in her own, singular way—the effects being both absurd and abject, playful and sinister.
Stout’s recent work has engaged notions of coming of age. In Narcissus we find Stout’s girl turned into a woman, one who not only conveys her role in life through her material surroundings, but also in her ability to leave untouched that which is naturally beautiful. This exhibition takes a lurid approach to what is normally considered decorative architecture, re-thinking the female form through its role in classical objects of function; a Venetian Moore lamp, a stool, a vanity, a mirror, a chandelier and tapestry.
