Oracle Sconce by Christopher Stuart & Julia Dault in Mirror Polished Bronze

About

The Oracle is the first collaborative piece by artist Julia Dault and artist-designer Christopher Stuart. The two worked closely over several months to refine their shared vision of a perfect wall sconce, rendered in mirror-polished bronze, pearlized polyurethane paint, and LED lighting. The Oracle celebrates its materials’ inherent characteristics; as with much of the pair's independent work, those materials seem to direct the object’s form. Dault and Stuart both push against the historical precedent of minimal art and design, and both also share an interest in making the intangible tangible. Human gestures, gravity, and industrial production processes (and their inevitable failures) are among The Oracle’s conceptual underpinnings. The sconce’s soft glow contrasts its mirror polish and pearlescent finish, just as the circle’s curve contrasts the rigid angles of the enclosing square. This balance is a metaphor for both Dault's and Stuart’s insistence on uniting form and content, as well as of the collaborative process itself. Commissioned by Sight Unseen for Field Studies, a benefit exhibition at Sight Unseen OFFSITE 2018. Net proceeds from the sale of this item will be donated to the Center for Reproductive Rights and Greenpeace.
