Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of internationally renowned artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, “Beautiful Premonitions.”
“Beautiful Premonitions” is a collection of twenty-one pieces that highlight Errazuriz’s artistic process. The concepts that drive his work are the underpinning for his designs’ dramatic and emotional power. Throughout his work, Sebastian approaches design with an investigative eye, often re-contextualizing or re-interpreting the function and purpose of traditional design objects. By doing so, he questions the viewer’s understanding of the relationship of art and design to their lives.
In his new work, Sebastian continues the development of past themes and concepts that he began exploring in his first solo exhibition in 2009. The Piano Shelf, 2007, composed of individual wood piano keys, is designed on the premise of a shelf that could be independently sculpted to suit the user’s needs. It can frame an individual object becoming a sculpture in itself, or it can act purely as a shelf.
