Suzy Lelièvres: Contorsions, Tables ChoquéesPosted: January 3, 2012
Two functioning tables: one functions slightly better than the other but that’s beside the point. The pleasure of Suzy Lelièvres’s piece is what happens at the moment seen above. With incredible craftsmanship and convincing accuracy, wood becomes both piercing and liquid, brutal and gentle, predator and prey. Lelièvres creates an artful dynamism out of one the most basic building blocks in the designer’s repertoire by playing on our sense of what is real and unreal and letting us believe for a moment in the impossible.
