Rem Denizen, Volcano Table $42,000>
Jason Jacques Gallery

This table originated as a collaboration of sorts between Rem Denizen and Jason Jacques, from a collection of cut, carved, and sculpted burl shelves and tables meant specifically for what they dubbed “the art collector lifestyle.” Within this broader body of work, the objects are completed only when the collector finally installs artworks on them. The process begins with conception and ends with installation and, along the way, dissolves traditional boundaries between producer and consumer, artist and audience.

Born in Detroit, Denizen is a thinker, artist, and maker currently based in Portland. He co-founded the Bruce High Quality Foundation, among other successful art-based collectives. He is currently focused on the psychology of user-maker relationships in art processes through OSAP (Open Source Art Process) projects.
