Description

Unique stool, handcrafted from ashwood, with visible chainsaw and abrasive paper marks. With time, some cracks can occur. The colour is made with chalk and pigments.

The stool was designed for the exhibition “Jardin Perdu”, which took place in 2019 at Bildraum 01, Vienna. The exhibition invited the spectator into a space that combined installative clarity with poetry. Evalie Wagner arranged plants, paintings, and objects into still lives, as a constructed, transient idyll. “Le paradis perdu”, the lost paradise, refers to the enigma of ideal places, which can’t be located and are ubiquitous at the same time. Like the historically intangible Gardens of Semiramis, the greened and animated space of Bildraum 01 seems harmonious, utopian, and dystopian at the same time.

The artist’s aesthetic vocabulary includes surprising correlations and modulations – pastel references to film and literature of the 1950s and 1980s and serve as historical reminders, which she subtly brings to the present in a playful discussion. The exhibition is an associative-mysterious puzzle game with space, form and concept, and botany as a metaphor and means to dissolve all this in the atmosphere. For the stools, the aim was to create a very simple, very initial form, following shapes which you can find in the Near East and Northern Africa.

The “Tabouret” stool is available in two colours: lavender and grey/white.

Profile Photo
Evalie Wagner
Evalie Wagner (1983) is an Austrian artist and designer, who currently lives and works on a farm in Upper Austria and in Vienna. She studied at the New Design University St. Pölten and the University of Art and Design Linz, where she graduated in Fine Arts and Cultural Studies - Experimental Art and Painting. She won a number of awards and grants and participated in several exhibitions and residency programmes in Austria and abroad. Her interdisciplinary work is marked by a wide range of historical and aesthetic connotations, references to design and crafts, and is situated in the space between the poetic and conceptual. Based on extensive research she creates subtly designed, associative works, which can be described as visual metaphors. Her site-specific installations are compelling narratives composed of different elements, be it paintings, botany, or objects. With a main focus on floral aesthetics, she calls herself an avantgardener.
