Sisyphus Office

Sisyphus Office is an exhibition organized by San Francisco based artist, curator, and co-founder of The Thing Quarterly, Jonn Herschend and based out of Skydive, a Houston, Texas gallery. The artists involved in the project are collaborating with businesses and offices in and around Houston in order to highlight art as an integral and necessary distraction in our day to day life. The artists and offices involved in Sisyphus Office are working physically and conceptually with the notions of existentialism, capitalism, artistic romanticism and deadpan slapstickism as a means to examine the artifice that keeps us clinging to reality and distracted from the void. Sisyphus Office is about punching the clock, and then punching it again…but harder the second time. It’s about transcending the mundane through the beauty and absurdity of distraction. It’s about recognizing the comedy in the tragedy of the day to day… and then waking up again to do the same thing all over again the next morning. David Fullarton’s contribution is an installation in the offices of Houston radio station 90.1 KPFT entitled “What I do at work when I’m supposed to be working.” It consists of a number of small works made entirely from office supplies, which are pinned up randomly around the office, in amongst the notices, flyers and memos that were already existing in the environment.

Hanger

Jun 1st, 2009

Hanger by Spanish designer Ferran Lajara. Climb and reach your jackets, I love it! “Placed several meters above the floor, this hanger transforms the wall in a little mountain that needs to be climbed every time users have to get their jackets.”
