axonometric plan of the sculpture
oak, metal, plastic, 130 x 130 x 100cm
The woodenSeating object derived from the Japanese pedestal architecture for bonsai or suiseki, small trees or stones. Here the viewer can take up different positions and thus angles of view in relation to the surrounding, one is seated and leaning and becoming the object him/herself – to be seen as the subject in the display. Familiar thought patterns are thwarted here with the choice of material – an elegant geometry made of finely worked oak meets a carved plastic seat – a paradox between what is asserted and the expectations and judgments that can deliberately not be undone. The view is thrown back.
