The Brazilian artist Francisco Nuk has been using wooden furniture as his way of expressing himself. The artist has an office that is also his workshop. His way of creating twisted furniture fascinates everyone. In an interview, he stated why he builds this strange furniture.
“Let’s listen to the useless. One day I heard from him: What if the base of the pyramid got tired, for one day, of supporting its weight? What if the rationality of its existence did not imply utility? What if, for just a moment, she was aware of the beauty and complexity of the useless?”
The statement above simply implies the aim of the twisted furniture he has been crafting. In his workshop, he creates wonders of the world. His recent twisted furniture bears traces of both conventional and unconventional art. As you can see, the style of his strange furniture is just classic wooden work. But of course, the overall look is not classic. It is manipulated or twisted furniture.
Uselessness Behind Twisted Furniture
Have you ever realized that what we have around this world is just useful stuff? We never leave room for things that we cannot use. The twisted furniture that Nuk creates makes us focus on beauty, art, a surrealist way of living, and many more. Yes, we cannot use this strange furniture in our home. But who cares? The furniture represents your impractical side of yours. According to the artist, you should see uselessness as a process of transformation.
According to the artist, the more we use useful things in our lives, the more we lose our ability to observe and the feeling of art. It does not matter if you believe twisted furniture can make you feel the art. What matters most is that the artist challenges the viewer. So, here is a question for all of us: What do you feel when you see twisted furniture?
