Little Chair
リトルチェア

These chairs for viewing videos were made for the “Waiting for Video” exhibition held in 2009. In order to make forty pieces of chairs at low cost, we designed the chair in such a way that three sets of five parts to assemble a chair can be cut out from a 910mm x 1820mm lauan plywood board. Considering that some of the video monitors are placed on the floor while the others are placed on display furniture, the seat height of the chairs is set slightly lower than average. Viewers can easily move these small and lightweight chairs as they wish so that they can watch the video works from appropriate angles. The angles of front legs and back legs are adjusted to create various impressions and movements when seen from different angles. After the exhibition was over, these chairs were continued to be used in the museum on various occasions including Koki Tanaka’s work entitled “A Project, Seven Boxes and Movements at the Museum” (2012-13).

ヴィデオを待ちながら展(2009年)のための観賞用椅子。40脚をローコストで制作するために、18mmの910mm✕1820mmのラワンベニヤから、1脚につき5パーツを3脚分切り出して組み立てることでできている。モニター作品には展示台置きと床置きがあるため、やや低めの座高とした。この椅子は小さく軽いので、観覧者は適度に位置を動かして作品に向かい合うことができる。前脚と後ろ脚はそれぞれ板の面内で角度をつけてあり、見る角度によってさまざまな表情と動きを感じさせる。展覧会終了後も美術館の備品として使われ、2012年には田中功起「一つのプロジェクト、七つの箱と行為、美術館にて」の一部に取り込まれることになった。
