“Left-handed Rietveld Chair” by artist Julien Berthier

Left-handed Rietveld Chair by artist Julien Berthier

I often check Julien Berthier’s website hoping to find new work. I didn’t find any today, so I’m posting more of his old work. This piece is the result of Berthier drawing Gerrit Rietveld’s famous “Red and Blue Chair”, using his left hand. A carpenter was given the drawing and instructed to produce five identical chairs.

See more images of the chair below, or check out previous posts of his work: hereherehereherehere, and here.

“The center of Fitjar”, a performance by Julien Berthier.

The artist was invited to exhibit on a small island in the Commune of Fitjar, Norway, and decided to find the symbolic center of the area by balancing a map on a point. Then, with the help of the people from the village, he physically extracted the center and moved it onto the small island.

After a couple of days the center was reinstalled in its original place becoming a permanent installation in the mountain.
