For the 15th edition of Pavilion des Arts et du Design, Carpenters Workshop Gallery proudly presented a solo exhibition of the Dutch duo, Studio Job, and their 5 iconic ‘Robber Baron’ bronze pieces. ‘Robber Baron’ is a pejorative term used to describe the rich American bankers of the 19th century. Power, corruption, art and industry were main themes of this series of 5 pieces of functional furniture made entirely in bronze. The full series is comprised of a Cabinet, Mantel Clock, Table, Standing Lamp, and Jewel Safe. Each piece reflects the outrageous excesses of America’s 19th century tycoons and Russia’s new oligarchs. In this series, Studio Job celebrates, and shames, both art and industry.
