Salon is proud to present Aratani • Fay’s first solo show, Lawless. For this exhibition, the pair draws their inspiration from the irregularity inherent in society’s defined systems and accepted structures. Aratani • Fay build upon this understanding by deconstructing common, everyday objects and reinterpreting them in a way that challenges the viewer’s preconceived notion of the piece. Ayako and Evan pair classic materials such as fabric and foam with unexpected mediums such as heat patinated metal to create architectural structures whose form belies its comfort. Merging sculpture elements with contemporary design, the Lawless series manages to achieve practicality within abstract forms that question our perception of function and utility.
