Piece was created for Claudio Vagnoni exhibition which will be held in Rome, September 2016.
On response to the exhibition theme - 'Rethinking Simple Plastic Chair’ - object is a reformation of function without its existence.
The used materials are white plastic chair, textile and concrete: the chair was covered with a textile saturated with concrete which resulted into petrifaction of the silhouette. Then the chair got rid of the produced form and the only thing left was the space created by the chair itself. Leaving void of its solid form.
“Ghost Chair” is a reevaluation of a mere white plastic chair – “reformation without its existence.”
"When working, may it be on buildings or furniture, we are trying to reduce form on its initial, primitive value.." - says Gigi Shukakidze
Though the idea was just a reevaluation of a mere plastic chair, the result is a sculpture-like dynamic object which seems to possess a character and consciousness like a human being.
