Erró donates Teapots to RAM at DesignMarch. Hafnarhús, Thursday 23rd of March.
DesignMarch is around the corner, Reykjavik Art Museum asked Erró to come up with an idea for participation in the project. The artist is known for his great generosity, and donated seven impressive Chinese porcelain teapots and announced simultaneously that the pots were a gift to the Art Museum. Pots as these are known in Chinese culture and used to store large amounts of tea leaves, as they are very large and can hold many kilos of leaves. Erro illustrated the pots in 2009 at the initiative of the French publisher Stéphane Klein, and they will be shown together along with paintings Erró used partly as a reference for the illustrations on the pots.
The exhibition at the Harbourhouse will be up from Thursday 23rd March til 9th of April.
