Fluide : Galerie Éphémère/Centre Tignous d’Art Contemporain – Paris, 2022
An exhibition of furniture elements driven by the notion of fluidity: an open-ended development where both the designer and the end-user contribute to the creative process. This is in contrast to a static design where the objects are predetermined by the designer to meet a defined and unique use.
This series of varied pieces made from wood: seats, benches, tables, shelves, etc., can be seen as a first proposal open to other interpretations. The forms presented, far from being fixed, thus offer a field of possibilities in terms of adapting the look of the object and also how that object could be used.
The end-user can therefore choose to appropriate and personalise the pieces by adapting or modifying or deforming the furniture. All the elements are white so colour can also be used to change their aspect.
In effect, the end user has the possibility to become the co-designer.
A separate room also presents a selection of photographs of daily life taken over several years in different countries; these images collectively served as the catalyst and inspiration for the exhibited objects.

Variations on a traditional Japanese stool where the user is encouraged to use and modify the furniture intuitively
Minna Gallery - San Francisco, 2019
A series of furniture where the user is encouraged to complete the object by adding/taking away/changing/interpreting the elements according to their own personal preferences. The user becomes a co-designer.
For the Minna Gallery event, the pieces were used for live performance activations by dancer-choreographers Gerald Casel and Erika Tsimbrovsky.
Le Génie des Jardins, Paris
The project, consisting of a series of elements made of wood, allows people to see, listen, and feel things from a different and unexpected point of view. Wooden seats are installed in various parts of a public square. Each element is different and encourages a different position or point of view: lying down, elevated to the sky, in a discreet place, etc.

Meuble Libre 2011

“After discovering this research work, the VIA gave Jeremy Edwards the opportunity to present his photographs of utilitarian objects based on everyday elements, juxtaposing them with manufactured products echoing them.
This exhibition allows us to perceive the amplitude of the field which exists between spontaneous creation and industrial creation. Its provocative nature does not try to supplant the reality of a daily environment composed of eclectic objects, whose meaning and symbolic value are at least as important as their use.”
