Chairs is a joint, performative appropriation of a parking lot with chairs. 'Sitting still and listening' become a gesture of empowerment and a possibility of deepened perception. Chairs is an invitation to feel and think about our common being in the world.
What remains are traces of the new markings on the asphalt, until it rains again.
