Chairs and Body Painting

What better way to start a day than with these two very nice ladies whose bodies are painted fully matching the covers of the chairs they are seated on?

Two other Dutch ladies, Iepke Seebregts and Saskia Hoek have created Gekleurd Naakt (i.e. Colored or Painted Nudes) which tells a story about their body painting travels all over the world resulting in a very nice series of culturally connected body painting photography.

You can find a selection of the body art on Pinterest

They have made a Body Painting Book as well. The second photo is the cover of the book. That makes the post apt for our chairvertizing category.

I also have to think about Natura Morta by Alexa Meade

Marni Chairs Project – Milan 2012




Marni Settee

Marni Chairs Project – Milan 2012

Marni is an Italian fashion brand that takes advantage of the public attention the Salone Mobile in Milan gets to combine a couple of things:

“L’arte del Ritratto” is a photographic exhibition depicting Marni world. A project in collaboration with photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice, that continues, his artistic research based on the work of cataloging: the chairs, made by colombian craftsmen, became the stage where Marni employees pose: a tribute dedicated to them destined to last over time.

So it is a sort of Chair Installation where the chair functions as background for a photographic exhibition.

But it is also a rehabilitation project whereby former prison inmates try to get a new life by the production and selling of these outdoor chairs.

Part of the sales goes to a charity in Milan to enable wives of prison inmates to get on with their life. So it is a charity project as well.

The color schemes of the chairs are in line with the Marni color schemes.

Clever, but I still call it simply Chairvertizing.
