Things aren’t always what they seem.
By ignoring convention, Chilean-born New York-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz, has become an expert at instilling his conceptual artworks with some measure of utility. Through found and repurposed objects, unexpected interventions and meticulously crafted interactive furniture, Errazuriz surprises, provokes, and engages at every turn, asking viewers to rethink the everyday.
We can see Errazuriz’s principles come to life with selected works from his first solo museum show “Sebastian Errazuriz: Look Again.” Explosion appears to be a fairly standard cabinet until its myriad maple components slide apart, while the 80,000 bamboo skewers of Magistral conceal regular cubbies and drawers. Says Errazuriz, “I don’t know where the line is between art and design.”
You can see “Sebastian Errazuriz: Look Again,” at The Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania until January 12, 2015. Submitted by: Jamie Source: interiordesign.net
