WANK by Craig Alun Smith

craig_alun_smith_wank.jpg

Craig Alun Smith’s WANK chair is a metaphor of the interdependent relationship between the first and third world and speaks to the war for oil in Iraq. You may have noticed the white chair is missing a leg (possibly due to a roadside bomb) and is bleeding oil….

Craig’s summary of this work: “In reality WANK is a joke, a commentary on the current state of design and the trend of designers to create pointless ‘one line’ design objects and pass them off as art”. WANK is also currently on display at the Winnipeg Art Gallery as part of the 2 Chairs exhibition.
