‘At what point does irrational thought become rational?’ is an attempt to present the process of a reoccurring action in sculptural form. Eric Lachance spent three months collecting as many chairs as possible. “The objective was to find 100 chairs between July 22 and September 27, 2023, but now that I have accomplished that goal, I can’t stop,” Eric admits. Chairs, seemingly simple pieces of furniture, take on a profound significance when viewed through a larger lens. He was hopeful that they would represent much more than just objects.
Eric believes that, “chairs are more than just chairs, they are members of the family, which means they hold emotions, traditions and experiences that reflect each member of a household.”
Eric will speak about this installation as part of the event ‘DesignTO Tours: Space & Sanctuary’ on Sunday, January 28. Click here to learn more and RSVP.
