The Lonley Chair
The lonely chair is a one of a kind piece. It is the only piece I’ve ever conceived as a rumination on melancholia. It is a chair for reflection, an art object that is a-temporal. It looks old, it has a weathered aesthetic, the front right leg looks like it came from an other chair. The chair seems repaired, patched up, used. The chair’s premise is a question: how can a chair convey a mood?, in this case a sense of sadness. The chair is comfortable to sit in, the idea being, it is both a pleasure to sit in as well as to look at. Sadness I believe is a beautiful feeling, easy to express in certain mediums but not in furniture.
