“The furniture sculptures refer to what happens to painting. Paintings are hung over a sofa, or between curtains, so it’s just natural, in a way.”

John Armleder’s installations extend the act of painting to preempt its usual, not-so-happy, over-the-couch fate.  This flawlessly installed show catalogs the artist’s furniture sculptures, that pair paintings with antique furnishings, domestic décor or goods like as truck spoilers, surfboards or lighting fixtures, to provoke a new reading of the canvas of the domestic space.
