The Number of Inches Between Them Gordon Hall

Published by Gordon Hall, New York, 2019, 94 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 15.3 × 21.5 cm, English

Price: €18

The Number of Inches Between Them continues a body of work in which Hall creates replicas of found, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. The replicas refer to objects Hall has encountered by chance and feels a magnetic attraction to, furniture that the artist wants to investigate physically through remaking. The Number of Inches Between Them doubles a geometric stone bench happened upon in a friend’s backyard in 2016. The replication is done twice: first as eight cast concrete interlocking panels that are shown assembled as a twin of the bench, and second as the same set of eight concrete panels presented disassembled and leaning against the walls of the gallery.
