Broken Peacock Chair

2008

I found this discarded and very dilapidated peacock chair in a dumpster in Guelph, Ontario, and I made several attempts via fax to learn how to fix it myself and/or find a professional who could help me fix it.  It was too broken and brittle to be repaired, though, so I wove three wicker copies of the chair in its broken state and showed them in a solo show, Material Concerns, at the Centres des arts actuels Skol in Montreal, QC.
