The artist started with a chair in the Rajasthani style, carved in wood and found in an antique shop, and had it cast in cement. This simple change of materials creates an unsettling feeling, what was meant to be inviting is now cold and ghostly. She uses this as the base for a strange contraption that resembles a navigational device or a simple machine. Extended arms (also of concrete cast from wooden beams) teeter off the top of the chair, strapped together precariously by electrical wires. Bharti Kher enjoys creating sculptures that are unbalanced and unresolved, her materials are often disguised and her references mysterious.
