‘DEEz dEzynED sCulptural tchairz wourE noT mAAde foUr yU. EYE mAAde deM foUr myE MuZe sheZ baD aSS.’ Elements of reality have been twisted in this project to give furniture a new meaning and explore the theatrics of ‘out-of-the-ordinary’ objects. The chairs primarily act as frames for the fabrics, while the fabrics showcase a myriad of techniques: punched leather, woven silks and wools, beading and embroidery resulting in embellished sculptural pieces. Together, the different elements of the installation make for an alternative experience; referencing what we know and what we do not; ai Fanta-ZY wourRld.
