When asked to propose a sculptural installation for the summer show in Jeff Bailey’s New York City gallery space, we wanted to invoke a narrative that would live up to the exhibition’s suggestive title, It’s Hot Inside. Drawing on some of the themes from our past projects, we designed and produced a one of-a kind loveseat consisting of 5 distinct heart-shaped components that billow up from the floor and kiss along their respective edges to form a single contiguous surface for summer loving. The seat’s voluptuous contours also provide for a dynamic spatial experience of the gallery: they frame the two dimensional work that is on the gallery walls while also giving visitors the option of viewing the work from a relaxed (seated) position.
Materials: Low density Foam, Resin, Wiggle Board, Auto body paint
And special thanks to Scott Kunstadt for all his help fabricating the Loveseat.
