POUR CELAIN by gregorysung for CRISTINA GRAJALES GALLERIES, new york, at london's MOET HENNESSY pavilion of art and design in berkley square in london, embodies beauty and the dilemma of duality raising issues of art and design form and function. the notion of materials inappropriate for the application are realized and a seemingly fragile object in the shape of a functional object is created. when conversation ensues, ?should i even sit? as the form suggests ?or should i observe as the material demands?? a motherly understanding takes place similar to a watching children at a museum who immediately understand ?no? but children know: ?of course, let us see.? and they do sit and therefore understand fully POUR CELAIN seats produced by korea ceramic masters and legs produced by the artisans of italy join together with cross joints of two worlds securing symbolically as materials & function ultimately create beauty, purpose, and balance.
