information:

In March 2015 I decided to build four "De Ligt" chairs designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1919. Following instructions from a tutorial included in the do-it-yourself book Rietveld Meubels Om Zelf Te Maken. I placed the dining chairs in the kitchen of my apartment in Heesterveld, part of the utopian district Bijlmermeer in Amsterdam Zuidoost. The installation consists of a full-scale photograph of the kitchen and a chair. This work was part of the exhibition "Maison d'Artiste" at Sandra Recio Contemporary Art – Geneva, in collaboration with Yaima Carrazana.
