Date:

1989

Description A stone chair that you can not sit on must be a sculpture!
Caption "At first glance, the works of Micha Ullman seem to be simply what they appear to be - sculptures of rust, earth, and diggings. But there can be no mistake about the direct communicativeness of his works. Their inherent symbolism aspires to the minimal, and to subtleness in the expression of the idea."
