STEREO LOVE SEATS HOT WHEELS

MARC STRAUS is pleased to present STEREO LOVE SEATS HOT WHEELS, an exhibition focused on the seated object central to a work of art.

What is a chair? As prosaic as the query is, it has been the subject of contention for the greatest minds from Socrates to Wittgenstein. There is no archetypal chair, no Platonic form of ‘chairness’. Yet we openly define any object to sit on as a ‘chair’.

As a philosophical metaphor, the chair symbolizes authority and status. The word comes from the Old French chaiere (“chair, throne”), thus from ancient Egyptian royalty to European kings, individuals of power are often seated high. Notice how heads of organizations are referred to as chairpersons?
