Robert Therrien's colossal sculptures, based on everyday objects such as
plates, beds, tables, and chairs, examine the interplay of proportions and
our relationship to objects. Robert Therrien elongates both the metaphorical
and formal qualities of his bed sculpture, No Title, by ingeniously
encouraging each to strengthen the other. The fantastically implausible
helix shape, which corkscrews 35 feet through space, enhances the beds'
otherworldly gigantism, creating a newly defined site where sense and orderliness
step aside for antic reverie.
