Bite It by Clem Chen
- Caroline Kurze
These bike seat sculptures, titled ‘Bite It’ and ‘Pink Eye’ were constructed from plastic, acrylic, spray paint and epoxy by Vancouver-based artist Clem Chen. The works were originally created for the Hot Art Wet City gallery in Vancouver, BC as a part of the ‘Saddle-Up’ show where local artists were given used bike seats to reinterpret, modify and decorate.
Recently, the pieces became finalists for a Designboom competition, the ‘ASIA AWARDS 2013’ conducted in collaboration with DA – Japan Design association NPO.
