Beloved pieces of furniture experience everyday life up close and often become an extension of one‘s own person. In this work, Bonvicini takes up this idea and reflects on the appropriation of objects in a domestic environment. In an ironic way, the men‘s belt on the table leg refers to its owner, who in the truest sense of the word has lowered his pants. From a distance, however, what at first seems like a forgotten or discarded leather belt turns out to be a permanently installed bronze sculpture. The play with realities, the effect of objects in their surroundings, as well as the preoccupation with domesticity and male dominance are well-known themes in Bonvicini‘s work.
