burniture by hongtao zhou

A set of burning chairs out of wax. Burniture: to burn, melt and collapse.
These small wick figures are really burning down the “coldness” of the icy-looking wax chairs. Cold chairs generate “hot” seats, baking, melting and disappearing. I do not know how long it will take, but over consumption this will weaken the chair system and eventually cause chair figures to collapse. It is just a matter of time.
