By dissecting the surrounding walls of the space his sculptures inhabit, american artist scott carter re-appropriates the existing materials inherently built into the architecture. a full-scale dinner table and seat, two fully-functional reproductions of le corbusier’s LC3 chairs, and a life-sized neoclassical bust are assembled from cut-out shapes carved away from the interior façades, deconstructed and reconstructed into practical new objects. furniture pieces like ‘a temporary engagement’ and ‘less is more’ are formed from cleanly-pierced silhouettes — both small and large circles, narrow rectangles, and linear planes — whose gaping absence from the wall creates a dynamic aesthetic arrangement on their own.
