Sebastian Errazuriz Remixes Classic Sculptures in Suggestive Ways

Headless candlestick holders, Greek God lights and phallic paperweights are some of the hilariously suggestive and form-explorative sculptural objects by New York-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz. The exhibition debuted at the David Gill Gallery in London and it is appropriately named 'Functional Sculptures.'

With a lineup of masterfully designed furniture pieces and accessories, Sebastian Errazuriz stuns and entertains with his sculptural objects. The inspiration stylistically ties into Greek and Roman statues. The artist focused on referencing works that have been "stolen from museums such as The British Museum, Le Louvre and the Vatican." In transforming these institutionalized creations into sculptural objects for everyday use, Sebastian Errazuriz makes them more accessible. The process of creation involves the digital manipulation of 3D-scanned artworks and their "re-cast into functional furniture," made with marble, Corian and a composite.
