The long march III

The long march III


“We see a kind of section from a massive and all but endless row of swaying and wobbling chairs. The reference to the founder of the Chinese Communist Party in the 1920s, Mao Tse-Tung, is evident. Nevertheless such a title also allows thoughts about other large-scale migrations of living creatures. Think of the wildebeest in the African plains, or flows of refugees, escaping from whatever atrocities.” (from Chairs and Titles by Chris Manders in All in the Family, 2016)


Three molds cut from cardboard of different positions of a chair back are endlessly repeated here to form a kind of pattern. The movement clearly goes from left to right, with the seats almost tumbling over each other. Of course the title is derived from Mao’s long march, hence the choice of color (I didn’t need a red book for that).
