Which objects sustain and why?
There is absolutely no difference between sculpture and furniture. All of the neuroses explored in contemporary sculpture are also hidden under the upholstery of furniture. This hypothesis comes from two observations; the body’s many perceived insecurities AND the neurotic need of the objects we presently call furniture.
In this workshop, participants will be asked to find a wrecked or dysfunctional piece of furniture from the garbage or from home. In the course of the workshop, each participant will “RESTORE” their object…pulling it through time toward a present pertinence.

Focusing on the push/pull of the previous days’ workshops, participants and the public at large are invited to gather at The Center for Art in Wood for a closing pop-up display of the works and ideas generated in the workshops. A discussion around what we learned and the relevance of the work to the exhibition at the Center.
