burning the chair to make the paint ( for Turn it over)
burning one of my great, grandfather's chairs along with ancestral letters, receipts & documents to mix with acrylic matte medium
DESCRIPTION: Chairs have been integral to the work I make, they are representative of the body, place holders for action, as well this armature creates an opportunity to poke at “the museum” as a way to represent special objects. This chair is just a chair, yet my family believes it to be special because of the writing on its underside. It has since been returned to my parents’ apartment and is used frequently as a chair should.
