Six parts of encapsulated furniture-like pieces are placed on top of a painted base. The object references the history of rattan as part of and alongside the history of modernism and its inherent violence. It therefore draws from historical transformations and continuities that start with an act of appropriation during colonial times, evolve into a favorite material of the eco movement and finally turn out plastic versions for garden lounges in the present. The base is a commissional work of Ana Navas. My choice to use a pollock-look points to the secret CIA funding of abstract expressionism promoting the capitalist system during cold war as another continuity of modernist ideas, but with art as a vehicle for politics.
