Darkness over darkness, it is a rawness that precedes time.
Before "The Crack in Chaos", Atelier V&F conceived an imagination of primordial rawness in "Revelation of Gaia". Based on this collection as the prelude, Atelier V&F is working to expand it into a majestic play, with the first act tracing back to the time before the birth of Gaia, to the start of everything, to the abyss cloaked with mysterious fog.
With Darkness, Disorder, Primordial Rawness and Birth as the keywords, the first act of this grand play is born. The Crack in Chaos is the moment when the shaft of light bursts out of the split of darkness that is the birth of universe and with it, space and concepts.
"Chaos Chair" descends infinitely closer towards the ground, solidly and steadily, like a steep hill or a ready beast. The pure black long hair of the covering fleece is metaphoric of the chaos that blankets everything. It is vaguely shaped and subtly reflecting light. The light falls from the zenith of the rounded back to its four border corners, unimpeded. The legs and bones of the chair are made by metal casting, which we have been repeatedly experimenting in recent years, and which also demonstrates our understanding of chaos in terms of techniques. The heated brass melts and loses its shape, becoming one and everything at the same time. Liquid metal slowly cools down and takes shape while flowing along, like lava in the unfathomable depth of the earth, dynamically still.
