Description

Modified IKEA products (wood, MDF, bamboo, steel, aluminum, nylon, hardware)

These recent sculptural projects seek to re-examine the rarified status of the Modern design object and the sociopolitical underpinnings of Modernist philosophy. Taking a vernacular approach by using a practice popularly referred to as “IKEA hacking”, familiar everyday products are transformed into sculptural forms layered with historical reference, visual invention, and humorous irony. INGVAR_1 is in reference to the late founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad.
