Exhibitions > Yaacov Kaufman - Stools 3

Flexing, Flattening, Moving

This group of stool is a relatively small group in which the emphasis is on the processing of the material and on attempts to expand its capacities to the maximum. Certain actions transform the material's basic qualities, at times even endowing it with new qualities. Traditional artisanal techniques are used to soften hard materials, while the use of every carved-off part transforms it into something new. Removing and reconnecting, flexing and lengthening the material. Close-cut incisions into the material endow it with mobility and flexibility, while the reassembling of cut-off parts endows them once again with structural qualities. Cutting and moving allow for a maximal exploitation of the material.

"The best things are created due to the need to make the most efficient use out of the existing materials," Kaufman concludes.
