I couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend the cold and rainy Queen’s Birthday public holiday than hanging out indoors at Chez CB. Den & I spent the afternoon catching up with Clinton who had just returned from his jaunt to the Berlin Biennale.
I’ve always loved retreating into a museum or gallery to escape from miserable weather outside so it was a perfect alignment of the stars to be invited over for brunch and a Monday afternoon hang. I hadn’t been to CB’s before and was swept up in giddy excitement as soon as I walked in, having so many interesting things to look at laid out in front of me. I felt like a kid being unleashed into a toy shop!
Koji Ryui. Playful!
Hiiiiii Cosmo!! Proof that a larger than life inflatable pet should be a part of every inner city household.
More art from Koji Ryui who likes to work with otherwise, mundane everyday materials.
This piece by Mikala Dwyer would be familiar if you managed to check out this year’s Biennale on Cockatoo Island. Looks like this piece could have been a part of Dwyer’s Hanging Garden
Meet MR FB – picked up from Edo Arts in Terrey Hills (living room loungers not included).
Bill Granger eat your heart out! CB whipped together some deliciously fluffy scrambled eggs. Plates by Iittala.
Just you know, your run of the mill home decor – a giant inflatable bunny, a hanging plastic terrarium and monkey skulls.
Meet Mumsy, CB’s mummified cat.
Chilling with some afternoon tea and some good ol’ Mint Slices. I asked CB which one piece of art he’d save if his apartment went up in flames and his answer was the little wooden Kokeshi doll hanging out in the background there. Kawaii desu ne!
Thanks for the impeccable hospitality and for sharing the joy of your collection, CB!
