Misfits for the Table 4-piece porcelain tableware set Each includes: small plate: 6.5" diameter large plate: 10.5" diameter serving platter: 12.2" diameter star plate: 9.5" diameter edition of 2,000 in each colorway
Marina Abramović has said about this limited edition tableware:
‘‘For my project with Bernardaud, I created two sets of tableware, which I call Misfits because they do not match each other. Each set has different sized plates that var yin shape and pattern. Together, these two sets can be combined for a misfit dinner for two or one set can be used to serve a lonely dinner for one.’’
Abramović created her limited edition four-piece porcelain plate sets for Bernardaud with each motif closely reflecting her personal life. Each set includes a small bread plate featuring the artist's own family crest and a dinner plate adorned with a detail from her artwork Golden Lips (2009). The star-shaped dish represents the communist star, a symbol that was ever-present in Abramović's childhood and life in ex-Yugoslavia. The golden serving platter was conceived as a counterpart to the star and represents the sun.
