This exhibition is a gathering of some individual works by the members of Das Leben am Haverkamp – the plastic chair as a stage for a current development in their artistic life.
Joost Haverkamp interviews the members about their contributions.
Christa what do you present in your chair? It looks intriguing!
C: ‘It’s a body, constructed by many, many knots. He sprouted from a macrame workshop a while back’
Gino what can you tell about your plastic chair? You even brought two chairs!
G: ‘Two suits which escaped from the office to chill in this garden, they no longer need the bodies.’
Wow Dewi, what is it we see here?
D: ‘It is a work made from vacuum formed PET and latex that has been worn on the naked body of a performer. It is left behind as a residue of an alter ego.’
A: ‘There is not so much sitting in my chair. Nevertheless, I took the time to decorate it with fluffy push buttons. I start to appreciate decoration more and more lately.’
