Utilising sculpture, installation, drawing and performance, the chair in its many permutations is the inspiration and starting point for diverse experiments with form and meaning.
From the humble cottage spindle seat to the majestic throne, the chair has become so omnipresent in our daily lives as to seem virtually invisible. Chairs are a natural extension of the human form, their construction mimicking the shape of a seated person, supporting and protecting the body.
Each of the three artists have established their unique interdisciplinary practices over several decades, and in this exhibition they celebrate the chair in their individual ways in order to generate personal narratives, playful interventions, and philosophical journeys.
At the same time, Beneath the Surface will be on display in our South Gallery.
