Naked Human Furniture by Spanish Artist David Blázquez

As Mark Twain said: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society”. Perhaps, but Spanish artist David Blázquez has decided to test whether the nude can make the furniture. The results have certainly been influential amongst gallery fans where the photos of the naked artist posing as chairs, tables and bookshelves have been on exhibition in the El Fotómata showroom in Seville, Spain.

The images pose many philosophical questions. How often have you wondered whether an item of furniture or other inanimate object can think and feel emotions? Is the bookcase in the alcove bored of standing there day after day after day? I must admit these thoughts have often crossed my mind, naturally followed by a “don’t be a silly ass” moment.

These photographs ignite the endless round of existentilist pondering that can drive a man crazy but they are indeed fascinating.

I do not consider myself furniture, but I can’t say the same for my cat. (That bitch.)

Full disclosure: I don’t actually have a cat.
