Chairs

Chairs move like human beings.

(Maria Lassnig)


Apparently drawn quickly on paper with a felt-tip pen, various kinds of chairs resemble breathing beings. Accompanied by an out-of-tune piano playing music for a silent film, they begin to move. Sketches of the objects’ incarnation resemble both slapstick and a threat.

(Maya McKechneay)
