Ale Preda’s MiMi table design for miduny is part of an exhibition curated by Sun You at the Tiger Strikes Asteroid gallery in New York. This is our first group exhibition and it’s been exciting to observe how a design object morphs when paired with artworks in the context of an art gallery.

In the curator’s words:
Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to present Still Big, curated by SunYou. Still Big is a group exhibition inspired by 17th century Dutch Still-Life paintings. These works broke away from the use of religious subject matter to depict secular objects like flowers, food, and bones in domestic interiors. These paintings explored quotidian reality as well as larger themes of life and mortality.
In Still Big, paintings, photos and sculptures are arranged on or around tables designed by NY-based furniture designers. These contemporary tableaus employ surprising juxtapositions to evoke erotic, gustatory and optical pleasures as well as poignant allusions to human frailty.
