For their often dark, Dickensian works JAMESPLUMB have been known to combines sofas or chairs with oak pew benches and blocks of concrete. To Love and To Cherish (2012) ), for example, is a rendering of a sofa but without cushions—they’ve been ripped out and replaced by concrete, cast to resemble a cushion. The remaining exposed frame is remarkably austere, skeletal even. While it could technically be sat upon, providing comfort is no longer its greatest asset. In the case of their Chesterfield Table (2014), the pair present a utilitarian work—both couch and bench can be sat upon—but the functions of its individual components have been changed irreconcilably.
