By dissecting the walls surrounding the space, Scott Carter builds his sculptures re-appropriating existing materials intrinsically integrated into the architecture. A large-scale table and chair, two completely functional replica of Le Corbusier LC3 chairs, and a life-size neoclassical bust assembled from cuttings taken from the interior facades, deconstructed and rebuilt in new practical objects.
Scott Carter was born in the U.S. and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he earned the Eldon Danhausen scholarship to Sculpture. His inspiration comes from the connection between humans and the environment that is built by and for them. He formulates assessments of his environment, which expresses the connections between art, architecture, design and environmental systems.
