While that show was the point of my trip there and back again, another fun and phantasmagoric exhibit was taking place. Called “Chair”, Arthouse Cooperative had sounded the call to do whatever the artists wanted to do with the word and its concept – or construct, as the case may be.
So here are my favourites from "Chair". Hopefully, you can click on the image for a larger view and catch the artist’s name and country of origin. Some were unavailable, for some reason... mmm.
This reads: "Child Of World War II". A hint of the housing developments going up everywhere at the time is just behind the girl. Maybe it was moving day... but, in or out? Was her dad home from the war? Was her mom one of the many Rosie the Riveters, making a new life for herself and her girl? So many possibilities are in this simple black and white photo.
My all-time favourite. What it means, I have no idea and really don’t care. I love sheep and this particular piece made me laugh...
Next to the sheep trio, I liked this one best. The composition and colours were so eyecatching and vibrant.
These chairs had to be shot from a weird angle to work. They lined the rather expansive window sill and weren't even as big as my index finger. I like miniatures and these were super fine.
