the gathering
Steel, ppp-rope, placyterium bifurcatum, set of combs, size and dimension variable
Three Acapulco chairs are positioned in a triangle so that one is facing the next. At the end of the weaving of each chair the rope leaves the frame, rises parabolically to the ceiling to descend again at the position of the next one where an elkhorn fern is hovering above its seat. As the construction is repeated with each chair, a circular movement is formed connecting each seat with the next yet without touching it.
The elkhorn fern (Placyterium Bifurcatum) is an epiphyte that grows on the surface of other plants and derives its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, or from debris accumulating around it.
