Ironic, sophisticated, precise—the work of Sebastian Errazuriz moves elegantly between art and design. The light but sneaky visual language of the New York-based Chilean is often compared with that of Erwin Wurm, while its morbid charm and clever wit suggests a kinship with Maurizio Cattelan and Gabriel Orozco. Errazuriz’s work has already been shown at over 40 exhibits in cities including New York, Paris, Tokyo, and Barcelona alongside design legends such as Ingo Maurer, Marcel Wanders, and the Campana Brothers. Sotheby’s sold one of his pieces at its renowned Important Twentieth Century Design Auction when he was only 28 years old. Today, Errazuriz's creations are snatched up by collectors the second they leave his Brooklyn studio.
This book is the first monograph of Sebastian Errazuriz’s work, which the New York Times calls “humorously avant-garde.” It includes conversations Errazuriz had with artist Tom Sachs and MoMA senior curator Paola Antonelli. The introduction texts were written by the art critic Christian Viveros-Fauné and gallery owner Cristina Grajales.
