纽约布鲁克林区艺术家Thomas Barger根据他在伊利诺伊州的童年经历,设计了一系列家具,并在在纽约沙龙94设计画廊(Salon 94 Design gallery)进行了展览。

Brooklyn artist Thomas Barger has created a series of furniture pieces based on his childhood experiences in Illinois, which are on show at New York's Salon 94 Design gallery.

这个“成长展(Growing Up exhibition)”专门为这位25岁的艺术家举办,他在伊利诺伊州的一个农场长大,三年前搬到了纽约。

The Growing Up exhibition is a coming-of-age showcase for the 25-year-old artist, who grew up on a farm in Illinois and moved to New York three years ago.

Barger说:“我的家具具有雕塑感,自从去年冬天设计出来,我比以往任何时候都更多地反思着自己的童年经历。”

他补充说:“每一件作品似乎都能一分为二,分别代表着爱情与功利,当我成年时,这些家具代表了我的过去。”

"My furniture is turning into sculpture," said Barger. "Since 'coming out' to my family last winter I have been reflecting more than ever about my childhood experiences."
"Each piece seems to be split down the middle with an equal focus on a love element and a utilitarian one," he added. "This body of work embraces my past as I enter into adulthood."

在曼哈顿下东区的沙龙94设计展上展出的这些设计,都与他在中西部的生活经历有关。

The designs on show at Salon 94 Design, on Manhattan's Lower East Side, are all connected to places and rituals Barger remembers from his time in the Midwest.

例如,弯曲的椅子、厚实的椅腿、圆形的手柄和不规则的穿孔,都是在模仿他曾经在附近小溪上看到的沙层。

For example, curvaceous chairs with chunky legs, rounded handles and irregular perforations are modelled on sand formations he used to see at a nearby creek.

Barger的作品透着夸张和孩子气,例如,带孔的像王位一样的座椅,高高的椅背摇摇晃晃,就像土豆华夫饼。他还设计了和这个椅子类似的一张小椅子。其它的还有弯曲的手柄或管状的椅腿。

这些家具的形状不规则,同时颜色各异,有绿色、黄色和粉色,他的设计有着从去年开始流行的卡通家具。

Barger's creations also bear exaggerated, childish shapes: a throne-like seat has a perforated, tall wonky back that resembles a potato waffle. There is also a similar smaller version, while other designs include curvilinear handles and tubular legs.
With these bulky, irregular forms in block hues of green, yellow and pastel pink, the series follows a trend for cartoonish furniture that emerged last year.

Barger通过把“纸浆”糊到旧椅子上让椅子成型,或者运用在广告网站Craigslist上发现的泡沫方法,做成了这些奇形怪状的家具。

他从纽约警察局外的回收箱里收集到这些纸,接着在家里用厨房的搅拌机做成纸浆,然后用树脂将材料固定在椅子框架上,最后刷上油漆。

Barger created the shapes by applying "paper pulp" to used chairs, or his own creations made with foam found on advertisement website Craigslist.
He sourced the paper from recycling bins outside of a New York police station and then mulched it in his Cuisinart kitchen blender. The material was then secured to the chair frames with resin and finished with paint.

Barger的设计作品与他的导师Misha Kahn的作品相似,Kahn也曾使用过回收材料来制作家具。

Barger在搬到纽约后,先在伊利诺伊大学学习了景观设计和建筑设计,后又师从Kahn。

Barger's upcycled designs draw similarities to the work of his mentor Misha Kahn, who also creates furniture from scavenged materials.
Barger trained with Kahn after moving to New York, having previously studied landscape architecture and architecture at the University of Illinois.
