Simon Martin at Collective

Louis Ghost Chair by Simon Martin takes the iconic Louis XV armchair as its starting point. In the transition from wood to plastic, artisan workshop to high-tech assembly line, to its afterlife as Philippe Starck’s version, the film considers the cultural capital of ideas and objects.

Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and Holburne Museum, Bath; with Collective, Edinburgh, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland and Elena Hill. Supported by Arts Council England with support from The Henry Moore Foundation.
