Wooden Chairs Suspended in a Infinite Loop

Brooklyn-based artist Marc Andre Robinson uses discarded furniture to create his eye-catching sculptural installations. The artist’s piece titled Right of Return (By Themselves and of Themselves) salvages over a dozen chairs and exhibits their assemblage as an infinite loop presented at a slant. Each chair in Robinson’s piece is an integral part of the installation.

Individually, the chairs retain their own original color and design, but are affixed to one another to create a whole new entity. There is also a sense of musicality to the installation, as though each wooden seat is its own beat in a composition. It even playfully echoes the circular motion of a game of musical chairs, though Robinson’s version is a surreal one in midair. Ultimately, though, the viewer is given the freedom to interpret the piece from their own perspective, whether they choose to see it as a whimsical construction or a spiritual symbol of repetition.
