Homage

Installation
Art Athina

What is a lightweight, stackable and copyable seating piece – the monobloc plastic chair- takes part in a site specific installation during Art Athina 2019 transformed in various acting characters in a group seating performance.

 

The unique pieces are rendered heavy, immovable, grouped together, cast in concrete bases forming a monochromatic environment that takes away any familiarity with the chair itself and repositions it in the given context in a narrative way.

 

In the case of Athens, Zappeion, an edifice that has been the host of highly historical events, “Homage” is an homage to the epitome of the affordable, free of any specific context and – thus democratic – piece of furniture as found and widely used in garden parties and rubble filled construction sites to manifestations and political events carrying multiple cultural connotations.

 

The installation consists of 7 pieces:
“Rocking”, “Together”, “Grounded I “, “Grounded II ”, “Melt”, “Impossible”, “Step”
