CHAIR No. 21

Angels are creatures who cannot always be seen. The thematic of the visible and not visible has appealed to me because it is one of the basic problems of art. You can feel something, see it, believe in it and as a matter of that know it. It is well known that art has the function of making the non visible being seen. Angels are creatures who differ in their structure from human beings. Therefore they are visible and perceptible only sometimes. Art can bring us this visibility and perceptibility closer. It builds bridges from the perceptible to the visible. It tries to explain the immaterial through the material. This chair implies function as well as the materialization of the thoughts of sitting. The chair is decorated and painted. It is wrapped in transparent foil to show the difference between visibility and perceptibility.
