Original Riot Chair from HQ exhibition (2013). Built to celebrate the global feminist revolution inspired by Pussy Riot, the Suffragettes and Slut Walk protesters.

History: The first action of the Armchair Destructivists was to throw a chair off the cliffs at Beachy Head. Miss Pokeno rebuilt the shattered chair then exhibited at the Armchair Destructivist show (The Aquarium, 2006). This chair was then used as the pattern for the eight “crooked” Riot Chairs constructed for the HQ show.

Materials: Beechwood frame, coir fibre, mixed animal hair, tacks, twine, staples, springs, calico, satin and silk.
