Bert Loeschner's 'Monobloc' collection animates a set of ordinary white lawn chairs. The plastic pieces take on lives of their own as faux outstretched thumbs mimic the movement of hitch hikers while all-white palms clasp umbrellas.

Loeschner's inordinate objects assume human qualities and characteristics by way of applied heat. He bends the seats with expert precision, molding them to suit the dimensions of swing sets,toilet paper rolls and cardboard signs.

Monobloc's gripping hand features are humorous on top of being entirely impressive. Viewers are instantly taken aback by hitch hiking chairs and swinging pieces of furniture, no doubt an exercise in the effects of live public art. Those who partake in his installations are moreover invited to consider the many facets of bodily forms.
