In the design exhibition “Oltre Terra. Why Wool Matters,” Italian design studio Formafantasma investigates the history, ecology and global dynamics of the extraction and production of wool. By looking at the development of wool production, artefacts, history and material culture, this exhibition aims at unravelling the complexities of the cooperative symbiosis between animals, humans, and the environment. This is the first solo exhibition of the internationally acclaimed design studio in Norway.
Works by Formafantasma have been acquired by museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum, Chicago Art Institute, Victoria and Albert Museum, Centre Pompidou, Stedelijk Museum, and the national Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
