Sculptor Gorriti's crazy blue chairs

Gorriti loves the eccentric. A few years ago, he had the idea of rescuing old chairs and painting them blue, with all sorts of weird appendages. When I suggested exhibiting a new series of his chairs alongside some of my paintings, he agreed, but said he wanted some of them to contain live animals and birds. So I arranged to borrow a bantam hen and a white buck rabbit from some friendly neighbouring farmers. Here they are, participating in this bizarre exhibition. (Note to animal lovers: they were only kept in their cages during opening hours for a few hours each day, and they survived the experience with no apparent ill effects!)
