A Chair that Would Collapse and One Wouldn’t




In Joseph Kousuth’s work “One and Three Chairs,” He raised the question of which representation of the chair is most “accurate”? and what is art?

In the work “A Chair that Would Collapse and One Wouldn’t,” I chose two ordinary chairs which are simply for sitting on and removed the function of one of the chairs without changing its look. I simply told the viewers which chair would collapse and which one wouldn’t via the title of this work: I hid the truth of “which chair would collapse” underneath its visual appearance.
