NEO-PRIMITIVE_STOOL

Aluminum
W 35 x D 35 x H 39 (cm)
2022

“Nature could one day disappear in the distant future”

<Neo-primitive> is an object that materializes the individual uniqueness of trees which represents nature by aluminum casting.

The collection shows an  relationship between primitivity and modernity, and the boundary between nature and artifacts.

It consists of a series of sculptural objects, chairs and a table that are creatively carved using natural elements such as branches, twigs and even a tree trunk. The elements are sand-casted into aluminum versions, while preserving their shapes.

The results have traces of nature as itself, but are made of an unchanging material aluminum, which gives a paradoxical and mysterious atmosphere.
