Michael Jantzen, Deconstructing My Chairs.


ST. LOUIS, MO.- Bruno David Gallery presents a series of prints titled “Deconstructing My Chairs” by Michael Jantzen. This is the artist’s third exhibition with the gallery.

Deconstructing My Chairs, is a series of photomontages that are part of a larger series of photomontages that visually deconstruct parts of the real world that we normally think of as stable and familiar. The images were randomly cut into pieces, and pasted back together in ways that reconstruct the original images into completely new forms. The new forms attempt to suggest ways in which the original chairs might take on new fanciful functions, as well as new hybrid images. The challenge is to retain just enough of the original chair image, so that the viewer can maintain some kind of a reference point of departure from it, to something new.

His work has been featured in a multitude of books, magazines and newspapers including, Wallpaper, Architecture Magazine, Architectural Digest, The AIA Journal, House & Garden, Popular Science, Domus, Elle Décor, Esquire, Dwell, Metropolis, Art Forum, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News, The Chicago Tribune, Der Spiegel, The Washington Star, The Kansas City Star, The Detroit Free Press, The Tampa Tribune, and The St. Louis PostDispatch. Some of the books include, “Architecture in the United States”, “Architecture Now”, “Architecture in the 20TH Century”, “The 21st Century House”, “Brave New Houses”, “Architecture Art, High Tech”, “The Solar Living Source Book”, and the “Atlas of Eco-Architecture”. It has exhibited at the National Building Museum, the Canadian Center for Architecture, the Harvard School of Design and Architecture, the Russian Institute of Architecture, and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Michael Jantzen received his B.S. (Fine Arts) from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and his M.F.A. (Fine Arts, Multi Media) from Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO. He lives, and works in Santa Fe, NM and St. Louis, MO.
