[ham-uh k]

800x300 cm
leather, stainless steel, rope

[ham-uh k], noun, a hanging bed or couch made of canvas, netted cord, or the like, with cords attached to supports at each end.
In his acclaimed opus Species of Spaces, Georges Perec describes the bed as “the individual space par excellence, the elementary area of the body”.  Adrien Missika played on the lines and paradoxes of an anthropometric space becoming the site of a collective experience, of an oneiric live together. [ham-uh k] is an oversized hammock made of leather that can host people on top and underneath it's surface: The cloudy suface creates a swingy float experiene while underneath is more like a cave.
