The Hot Seat is made from a series of drawings that focus on the impermanence of the physical things we perceive in our reality. The destruction of these objects is motivated simultaneously by the primitive desire to see things destroyed, the resentment of existence and our inability to control the effects of nature.
Jackson and I have admired Benjamin's work since we were studying as students. Their catalogue is huge, and always growing; they’ve made books and zines with some of our favourite artists and collaborators, from Himaa and Ken Kagami to Andreas Samuelsson. There’s a sensitivity to the way they put publications together that makes each one a pleasure to spend time with.
