GESTALTEN.tv: Sebastian Errazuriz
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.
In order to understand the cross-genre works of the New York-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz, take a glimpse into his Brooklyn studio. A piano spontaneously hangs from the the ceiling intermingling with Jesus sculptures on the wall. Errazuriz’s interest towards the fusion of functionality and artistic freedom spurs him to explain the world in new creative spheres. Leading up to the launch of the artist's first monograph The Journey of Sebastian Errazuriz and his solo show at Rove Gallery at this year’s London Design Festival, Gestalten.tv has a special feature on the Chilean artist. He reveals the secrets to his international success, his insatiable aspiration for persistent creativity and the challenges he faces while pushing his oeuvre to the next level.
