In front of the studio’s current projects wall, Burks’s assistant Anna sits atop the beanbag-like Rope chair from the exhibition. To her right, a diffuser from one of the exhibition's lamps sits in a chair from Burks’s 2009 M’Afrique installation at the Moroso showroom in Milan. For the installation, Burks also traveled to Dakar, where he devised these chairs of hand-woven polyethylene cord pulled over a galvanized, powder-coated steel frame.
