Provisional State I

Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, 2013

This body of work investigates the chair through narratives experienced, remembered and imagined. Chairs can represent power, death, passion, mischief, and everything in between. I am interested in this melting pot of associations, as well as personal relationships pertaining to the viewer. Chairs have an intimate bond with us that is dictated by our bodies; they trace us, hold us and bear our physical imprints.
