Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL
FOUR HANDS, 2017
34 x 14 x 14 inches
Hall enlarges to seat-size the Ball and Claw
design motif that is commonly found at the
bottom of 18th century furniture and arranges
them in the locations of the four feet of an
enormous invisible Queen Anne style side table.
These four furniture-animal hybrids hold the
body of the sitter in an intimacy mirrored in the
bird claw’s grasp of the ball.
Viewers can see FOUR HANDS in use from
12 to 1 pm on October 14.
