"If You're a Chair, I'm a Chair" at the Chandler Gallery

At the Chandler Gallery, Hilary Tait Norod shares her vision of love and modern partnership through furniture-as-sculpture and paintings

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 - 10:00am to Friday, March 27, 2020 - 5:30pm

The heart of “If You’re a Chair, I’m a Chair,” the latest show at the Chandler Gallery, is a sculpture made of two antique wooden chairs. After cutting them down on their inner sides, artist Hilary Tait Norod bound them together with many layers of different materials, such as yarn, rope and scraps of wood, “to unite them as one.” The once-separate pieces became more than just a loveseat, but a representation of the artist’s marriage.

The title of the show, which is also the title of the sculpture, represents the two conversations Tait Norod hopes to foster in the work, which also includes painted mirrors and canvasses. Both the personal and romantic aspects of her own relationships and the larger concept of gender equity in modern relationships are topics that frequently inspire her.

“If You’re a Chair, I’m a Chair” is on display at the Chandler Gallery from March 9-27. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 19 from 6-8pm.
