“This work was located in an abandoned house –  a place, a home – near Toulouse in south west France. I wanted to express this state of life without life; this condition of presence in absence that is a part of simply being in time and space. I found a means to explore these spatially around the use of one word, chair. The chair, as an object, defies boundaries of class and culture and relates specifically to the body which it outlines, frames and supports.  It also describes the role, function and status of an individual. In this work, the role of the viewer is essential in that by moving through the space they experience the tenses of chair, chairing and chaired in a single installation.”
