This collaborative project examines the innumerous possibilities that emerge when four artists make their own twenty-four-part series of chair arrangements.

Chair Piece #5
C-Print, 24 ¼ x 30 ¾”

Bia Gayotto and Mary Claire Stevens selected two images from each of the four sets of Chair Piece #1-4 according to different criteria based on what the images evoked in them: aesthetic, psychological, sociological, or sculptural. The eight selected arrangements were then re-arranged and re-photographed with a medium format camera playing with notions of appropriation, collaboration and authorship.
