Symbiosis - Vasa Intestina
Symbiosis - Chair series Vasa Intestina In Vasa Intestina series- anatomical mystery collides with domesticity. Arne Jacobson’s design icon, the Series 7 chair morphs into forms inspired by anatomical drawings. The intersection of two things that we take for granted everyday: our internal organs and dining room chairs. The internal organs chosen are those in the torso – the part of the body that would be in direct contact with a chair. Sawn by hand, the artist has cut an intricate path reflecting the sinuous and delicate pattern of human organs. This work illustrates Lisa Jones’ intrigue with things both familiar and hidden and a desire to expose the internal structures that underlie human existence.
