pine, miniature figures
H 180 x W 90 x D 95 cm
An oversized Köln chair, as tall as a human, is populated with miniature figures, which are entirely dwarfed by their landscape. The sculpture is using the oversized chair to comment on our relationship with the world around us.
In the HorgenGlarus series, this classic chair, a purely functional piece of furniture, is being turned it in to a work with emotional resonance. Through constant reinterpretation, the chair has become an ideal blank canvas for ongoing experimentation’s with its form and materials (such as silicone, slate, rubber, resin), each taking on a new personality.
