Table And Chair

There they are, a table and chair against a wall. They are part of the Permanent Collection in Tate Britain in London.

At first sight it made me think of Dostoyevsky’s writing table and chair that Tamara and I saw when we visited his apartments (now a museum) in St. Petersburg in July 2017.

But a closer look explained why this table and chair merited being an exhibit in the Tate.

Surprise!

OK, it is not high art. Perhaps not even art. It makes me smile though. I have this idea that the creator got the idea when he slammed a chair against a table and imagined for a moment that the chair passed right through and into the solid wood of the table.

If there is a revolution and all art is banned, they might be able to resurrect the table and the chair for future utilitarian use. The table would be easy; the chair might be a bit of a problem.
