Common Objects is an ongoing collaborative project founded in 2012 by graphic designers Mélanie Dautreppe-Liermann (FR) & Margherita Huntley (UK).

We met while studying at Central Saint Martins, and began working together as an occasional studio on projects that emphasise our shared approach, which aims to be interdisciplinary across art, design and humanities, and considers graphic design as a form of research in this area.

We are open to a range of concepts, formats and platforms, especially interested in printed matter but also in producing 'objects' (talks, exhibitions, workshops, publications, image-making).

Choses Communes a été fondé en 2012 par Mélanie Dautreppe-Liermann (FR) & Margherita Huntley (UK).

Margherita et Mélanie se sont rencontrées pendant leurs études à Central Saint-Martins (Londres) et ont commencé à collaborer sur des projets s'articulant autour d'une approche commune qui, expérimentale et interdisciplinaire, vise à questionner les formes établies.

Choses Communes situe sa pratique au point de rencontre des arts, du design et des sciences humaines et tend à considérer le design graphique comme une forme de recherche.

Ouverts à tous les formes et formats, nous sommes particulièrement intéressées par la production d'objets variés (conférences, expositions, évênements, ateliers, publications...) qui tendent à élargir le champ des possibilités et les définitions du design graphique.

Corner exhibition

'Corner exhibition' aims to re-think the traditional exhibition space and opens it to marginal, ephemeral, experimental and alternative approaches.

The exhibition and the catalogue are both embracing the complexity of use of spaces usually ignored: the works are presented into the corner of the room and are displayed in the catalogue right along the spine, two spaces that, respectively in spatial and graphic design, are normally avoided.

The catalogue also contains an essay on unusual exhibiton spaces entitled If not museum, what? Alternatives, attitudes and new museological practices
