Focus #02 – Chairs and benches

posted on February 9th 2021 in Senza categoria with 0 Comments

For this new focus, we would like to present a selction of artworks that could be used to sit or lay down. Chairs and benches have always been subjects and objects in the history of art, carrying a series of meaning linked to the concept of power in the past or the more contemporary idea of common object to allow us to stop and rest. Over the time, designers, architects, photographers and artists made the seats object of their research and interest. Chairs become protagonists even for Theatre and Dance contexts. Chairs and benches have been represented as reference to life and death, to loneliness and passage of time, to everyday life, up to the allusion to the personality of the person who sat on them. Among the several examples that can me mentioned, Jospeh Kosuth who in 1965 presented “One and Three Chairs”, raising the image of a chair to a concept.
