designer gitta gschwendtner brings inanimate objects to life in her exhibition ‘furniture life’ at barrett marsden gallery. the show featured a surreal collection of objects that gschwendtner made appear wounded. the objects themselves consisted of antiques and found pieces of furniture that are accompanied by glass elements that suggest life or hurt. the glass makes the objects appear to ‘bleed, sweat and ooze gunk or guts’. by adding these new elements to the objects, gschwendtner observed that they took on a warm quality despite the ‘white cube’ gallery setting.
