"The purpose of camouflage is to disguise the object so as to make it more difficult to perceive," states curator Leevi Haapala. "Instead of covering up, camouflage conceals by revealing. In the Camouflage exhibition contemporary art and design are concealed by and in one another."
Both camps feel attracted to the ideas and practices of the other, yet they frequently try to preserve the dividing lines. With their actions, works, active discussion and concept definition, designers and artists alike have opened the intersecting area in interesting new directions. Here, the relationships between art and design are celebrated and revealed through experimental works by a broad assortment of artists and designers.
