Throne, 2012 – 2013

Edition of 64.

Published by Hotel Particulier.

Opening reception: Tuesday, May 21, 6 – 9pm

Hotel Particulier invited Trong Gia Nguyen to encompass the idea of chairs, of early adopters and advocates of a new venture. Nguyen’s project Throne created a matrix with the 64 standard metal folding chairs of Hotel Particulier, by adorning each with a distinctly located patch of 24K gold leaf. Conceptually and literally, the 64 puzzled segments of gold form a single, entire golden chair, which can only be fully realized in the mind’s eye of the beholder. The chairs are furnishing Hotel Particulier’s café until acquired, and then gold leaf is applied on the matrix.

Trong Gia Nguyen is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. His work is invested in examining and shaking structures of power as they relate to the dynamics of culture, politics, and economy. He has produced everything from iPhone applications (Metaphysical GPS with Christopher K. Ho) to installation, film, painting, sculpture, performances, and web-based actions. Nguyen has exhibited extensively with works in public and private collections.
