Roberto Sebastian Matta

MAgriTTA
Gavina/Simon
Chile, 1971
upholstery, nylon
33 w × 36 d × 24 h in (84 × 91 × 61 cm)

MAgriTTA is an object that oscillates between art and functional design. The object acts as a stool for occasional seating, but the form is borrowed from a painting by Rene Magritte, becoming a surrealist objet d'art. Matta is clever in utilizing a capitalization of the letters of his name in the titling of the object adding a final twist to the enigmatic form.

estimate: $2,000–3,000
result: $2,300
