SCULLIED WALL-MOUNTED DRINKS CABINET

SCULLIED WALL-MOUNTED DRINKS CABINET

2012

Unique piece

Inspired by Irish artist Sean Scully’s Wall of Light series, this wall-mounted drinks cabinet uses a palette of pressure-dyed woods in varying thicknesses, referring to Scully’s application of paint and to the Irish landscape, an abutment of walls and fields. The piece’s title ‘Scullied’ is applied here as a verb, a term of our own invention, meaning the act of getting drunk, fluttered/langered/scuttered. Scully discusses the relationship between alcohol, art and the artist in “A Mudpit of His Own Making”. Selected pressure-dyed veneer including iced koto, blue bolivar, grey oak, Makassar ebony, grey tay, black birch, wenge, smoked oak. A lower flap opens to form a surface upon which to make a drink; the cabinet doors open to reveal an iced koto interior and a striped drawer. Hand rubbed satin lacquer finish.

FAMINE LARDER

FAMINE LARDER

2010

Limited edition of 3 + AP

A key piece in zelouf+BELL’s Found collection, the Larder is a traditionally made cabinet in solid European oak, with a hand cut stencil graphic by Dublin-based artist/activist Will St. Leger. The figures (based on sculptor Rowan Gillespie’s 1997 Famine Memorial bronzes at Custom House Quay) are shanghaied by St. Leger with the introduction of a bag of groceries from Fallon and Byrne (a Dublin gourmet food emporium) into the gaunt arms of one figure, a tiny trophy dog in the other. In commissioning St. Leger to spray paint the graphic on their Larder, zelouf+BELL create a kind of shroud of Turin, the ghostly pair emerging from the wood, from the distant past of the Great Irish Famine and the not so distant past of the Celtic Tiger. The Larder raises questions about how we Irish perceive ourselves, and who we really are. As an object of desire, the Larder is the ultimate food store; superbly made using traditional techniques, with a hand rubbed oil finish, the Larder features a brilliantly concealed handle. When the Larder’s expensively hinged doors open out, the viewer/supplicant is embraced by the promise of plenty. The emaciated figures clutching their incongruous booty disappear from view, blotted, for a moment, from our collective memory. In European oak, with concealed handles, adjustable height shelves and rails. Hand rubbed oil finish.

OLD HEAD CABINET

2007

Unique piece

A frame-and-panel sideboard in solid Irish oak with a scorched Irish ash top and a silvered (palladium-gilded) base, with black and white stained glass panels by Irish artist Peadar Lamb. A recess between the drawers and cabinets inset with Irish salmon skin acts as a handle. The Irish oak is wire brushed, limed and oil finished. The contemporary stained glass panels resonate beyond Peadar’s response to the physical landscape surrounding the lighthouse-inspired retreat, incorporating aspects of Celtic story and prehistory. One panel recalls the sinking of the Lusitania off Old Head, another the surrounding landscape and coastal inlets and even the house itself, from different vantage points. Hand rubbed oil finish.
