Marcio Kogan: Prostheses and Innesti

"Prostheses and Innesti" is a collection of furniture created by construction workers at various building sites and then reinterpreted with gentle interventions by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan and his Studio MK27. Born out of various necessities these pieces have been created with materials available at the sites. Kogan and the architects at MK27, mindful of the wealth of ingenuity displayed in these anonymously constructed works, modified and added elements to these pieces. These interventions to the original objects evoke an effect of contrasts, prolong their lifespan and offer new meanings and materiality.
