Ivan Puig‘s 2008 chair installation has a strikingly eerie nature that is only eclipsed by its execution. Ivan explains the installation’s true purpose:

“The piece outlines a comment on education, challenging the artificial induction of knowledge. More generally, check the power structures on which ‘feel’ the doctrine of education in the country and its system, strongly affected by conflicts of economic, political and social. Registered in the context of an institution dedicated to the training of teachers.” – Ivan Puig.


“La pieza esboza un comentario sobre la educación, poniendo en entredicho el artificio de la inducción al conocimiento. De manera más general, revisa las estructuras de poder sobre las cuales se ‘sienta’ la doctrina educativa en el país y su sistema, impactado fuertemente por conflictos de orden económico, político y social. Inscrito en el contexto de una institución dedicada a la formación de docentes.” -Ivan Puig.
