Coito Sculptural Side Table in Tropical Hardwood by Pedro Paulo Venzon

$3,100per item

About

Coito (translate into English as "Coitus") is a side table that forms part of a trio of pieces called the "Tríptico Infame" (Infamous Triptych). The “Tríptico Infame” is a look at the colonial devices, the technologies of confession and the rigid discipline that operated in the production of a redemptive iconography. The piece intends to establish a hybrid relationship between severity and lightness, between sculpture and furniture, from a division between that which forms the order of function and that which, desecrating it, establishes dialogues not only with decolonial hyphenation, but also with contemporary aesthetic discourses. In an embodiment of resumption, the piece departs from the typical structure of devotional painting. As a result, it produces a play between lack and balance, sacred and profane, lightness and severity, zero-degree functionality and concern with the narratives that underpin the culture of design. Made in Brazil, the pieces are painstakingly carved by hand by craftsmans without the use of computer numerical control (CNC) machines.
