On a hundred cups are a hundred overheard sentences from strangers’ conversations. These overheard cups will be displayed in a café where these conversations took place, where you can sit down with a cup of coffee and hopefully hear something memorable.
During these strange times over the past year we have not been able to spend time around people we don’t know. It’s surprising to realize that we miss overhearing conversations and secrets that are of no concern to us. To hear a fragment of a chat between two strangers is one of the small things in life we don’t realize holds any value until it is lost. Whether it’s some form of gossip or emotional struggles, we sometimes remember these fragments and wonder what came before or after and think about it even years later. Studio allsber celebrates these fragments of strangers’ conversations with the exhibition ‘A Hundred Overheard Cups’, showcasing a hundred sentences engraved on a hundred handmade ceramic cups.
