Sculpture in jacaranda wood and yellow enamel paint. This unique artwork, carved to look like a cheap plastic garden chair, is situated within an ongoing body of work by Cameron Platter in which he 'totemifies' throwaway consumer objects and asks us to reconsider the line between the high and low, between what is trash and what is precious. To make each chair sculpture, Platter locates a worn and half-discarded plastic chair and ask its owner to exchange it for a new one. The worn chair becomes Platter's reference for his sculpture.

While sturdy enough to be sat on, this chair is not for everyday use. To clean, gently dust and wipe down with a soft dry cloth when required. A slightly moistened soft cloth may be used if required. Gently lift and place, do not drag across any surfaces. When relocating, fine art handlers are required to package.
