"OS.14.02", installation, 2009
Using industrial tubing normally found only at building sites, Sebastien Wierinck crafts robust seating in complex forms. "OS" is short for "On Site" and describes Wierinck’s method: creating social situations through materials in site-specific interventions. The tubes are a twofold metaphor for Wierinck, on one side a symbol of intimate connections, what he calls "the umbilical cord", and on the other side a symbol for flexibility, mass production, and mass communication. "OS.14.02" was featured at TodaysArt Festival in the Netherlands and will be specially adapted it to the CTM-Lounge at MAO.
