Recliner Cathedra, 2013.
Deconstructed chair, brass, steel screws, 120 cm x 60 cm x 36 cm approx.
A chair is a reflection of our physical reality; it exists solely as a response to the human form. A chair can be a place marker for a person, representing presence or marking absence.
The structure of the chair has been sliced and reconnected using the leather skin of its own seat, becoming a skeletal framework. Still bearing the scuffs and scars of its prior existence, and displaying the markings of its transformation, the fragility of its anthropomorphism becomes apparent.
