Casper Braat had his first solo exhibition at TORCH Gallery last month, where he presented household items in mirror-smooth marble. For the series entitled "Forever", he transformed an iron, a coffee maker, a toaster with gilded sandwiches, a mixer - in short, an endless series of appliances, into precious, desirable design objects. Casper Braat thus points out to today's consumer his insatiable desire to buy. We want more and more of the same, just in a different form. As soon as a new toaster is in circulation, we dispose of the old one with equal ease. The lifespan of household appliances is therefore short. Casper Braat puts them on a pedestal and gives them eternal life in marble and gold. The smooth marble soap bars that he presented numbered as design objects with his name on them are irresistible.
