It took the artist around five days to build 'Chairs For Abu Dhabi' sculpture. Visitors are invited to walk through the dome and take a seat inside of the structure. Unlike the previous versions of the artwork installed in France, the Abu Dhabi chair sculpture features "a mixture of all kinds of wooden, metal, colorful chairs - everything," the artist says in a statement, according to Junk-culture. The piece has become one of the most eye-catching artworks at the art fair, where people come and take a rest throughout the festival.
"An empty chair is waiting for people to sit down, and then a chair is connecting to other chairs," he explained. "So it's really like a waiting spot, open for everybody to sit down. That's kind of the metaphor we're using."
Born in Hokkaido, Japan, Kawamata has been known for his use of scrap materials in many of his installation. The artist also attended in important international events from a very young age.
