Chilean born, New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz presents at Design Miami/Basel the Chicken Lamp, a table lamp realized with a taxidermy chicken.
With this Chicken Lamp, after his first Duck Lamp, Errazuriz’z continues exploring the border between the sculptural and functional qualities of both art and design.
“I was actually afraid of the public’s reaction when I first presented the Duck Lamp. Taxidermy wasn’t a trend yet and I didn’t want to be considered a freak, but felt compelled to make it. Somehow it made sense to me and to my surprise when I presented it in a gallery, it seemed to make some weird, unconscious, fucked up sense to other people too. It apparently felt familiar, beautiful, terrible, and funny at the same time” Errazuriz explains about his taxidermy pieces.
