Chilean born, New York artist Sebastian Errazuriz has created sculptural furniture ‘’the Explosion cabinet’’ as part of “Sebastian Errazuriz: Look Again” exhibition which opens September 6, at the Carnegie Museum of Art. With its unique design, it challenges the paradigm of Cabinet conception. Inactivated, Explosion sits as a tidy, beautiful credenza. Transparent glass sidewalls provide a glimpse inside this intriguing but staid box. Further exploration of the central vertical seam reveals an entirely different object: With a gentle push, the rails slide further and further open until it seems that the cabinet has exploded beyond the bounds of stability. Just brilliant! Don’t you think so?
