Oversized Everyday Objects - part 130. Apr2012

TAGS: plastic, metal
Designed by Robert Therrien

Chicago-born Los Angeles-based sculptor Robert Therrien, among other projects, makes giant versions of ordinary household furniture. The everyday objects are transformed into monumental sculptures and fantastic installations.

"The artist’s point of view – from the small world – could be viewed as a large ges­ture pub­li­cally. The prac­tice is cre­at­ing some­thing both large and small. Pub­li­cally, Table and Chairs is per­ceived as a big object, where it actu­ally orig­i­nated from a small detail-a corner bracket sup­port­ing the table leg. Instead of crawl­ing under­neath and pho­tograph­ing an actual table in order to see it, why not shrink your­self and take a normal snapshot?" - Robert Therrien
