Low Chairs Family


Jovana’s work is indeed imbued with a spirit of real life experiences and cultural generosity, which informs a personal practice of technical acuity and relational character. The Low Chairs Family series, one of her first realizations after moving to China, plays out the positive contradictions inherent in cultural encounters often, albeit ingenuously, predicated on mutual stereotypes and misunderstandings. The series is itself a response to the misconception Jovana had about Asian seating privileging low and crouching postures, an expectation proven wrong by her actual experience in China. These deceptively ‘low-rise’ chairs and tables are made appealing and genteel in their solid largesse by a scheme of pastel colors and matching sets of soft cushions. Technical and aesthetic refinement are the product of both skill and sensitivity, one that makes itself recipient to the invisible, ordinary trafficking of symbols and objects. vai
