In Seated Bronze, Tschabalala Self uses an everyday moment and object – sitting, on a chair – as an entry point to questions of permission and performance.
Created alongside the artist’s first large-scale public sculpture, the work celebrates an otherwise-innocuous moment of relaxation. Each bronze sculpture is finished with a unique, mottled patina.
“The woman is strong, beautiful and self-possessed. She represents all individuals, but women in particular, who understand the power and importance of simple gestures that assert their right to take up space.”
On October 5 Self's monumental sculpture was unveiled at Coal Drops Yard in London, where it will remain on view until early 2023. To discover the collaboration in full, visit the accompanying journal.
