JAMES HAYES : NESTING CHAIRS : 1997
"NESTING CHAIRS"
Commissioned by Temple Bar Properties for the Temple Bar Street Art Symposium.
17th September - 26th October 1997

I use chairs in my artwork in a figurative manner & the chair brings with it all the associations of home. By bringing this figure of domestic life out to the streets of Temple Bar, I want to highlight the fact that the area is not only a district for shopping & entertainment, it is a neighbourhood & a home to many people.

There is a certain absurdity to the image of a colourful chair locked to a pole, a playfulness reflected in the choice of "toy" colours. Another echo of domesticity is the way I moved the chairs gradually from steet to street like a herd of grazing cattle. This "flock" was then dispersed to sites throughout the neighbourhood.
