The artist has observed of this work: 'the chair a figuration of obligatory undressing of arbitrary discarding the outer layer of vulnerably remaining separately the chair a portrait of empty strength of lonely courage the tangible reality the structure and stability constantly' This piece was included in the exhibition 'Schmatte Couture', curated by artist Sarah Lightman for Ben Uri at the Rivington Gallery in London's East End in 2008.
