ZZ Top

2011 Artist’s Statement:

A door represents enclosure and containment. Our concept was to turn the door inside out, embracing the space around it versus its historical use of enclosing space.

To accomplish this we decided to basically “fold” and fragment the door. Early schemes were overly fragmented and distorted, which we felt lacked sensitivity to the original form of the door. Through a process of refinement, we were able to retain the identity of the door while still deconstructing it.

Inspired by the works of Gordon Matta-Clarck and Donald Judd.
It's a coffee table.
We named it ZZ Top.
