Ted Noten (1956)
Charity: Stichting Vrolijkheid

Jewellery designer Ted Noten, Artist of the Year 2012, chose a chair with an enormous bulge in its stiff seat. As though the chair absorbs a new memory whenever someone sits on it and grows larger until it has become a throne. As contrast, Noten replaced the old back with a cheerful, pink acrylic one. In order to allow the person who sits on the chair to house memories or personal belongings, Noten added a zipper into the seat. Or might the ‘enfant terrible’ have hidden his ‘Lady K Bag’ – an acrylic purse with a golden gun and bullet – or a brooch with a piece of bodywork from a Mercedes-Benz in it?
