Consisting of different types of chairs covered in Henri Matisse paintings and cut outs, ‘The Matisse Collection’ reflects the reduction of Matisse paintings to décor. Resembling images from a sales catalogue the work hints at the relationship between the consumer and art whilst (humorously) reflecting Matisse’s view that “Art should be something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue”.

A book a day in Hay is compiled by Emma Balch. Emma grew up in a house full of books. They were piled up on every available floorspace, crammed onto bookshelves onto bookshelves that touched the ceilings, tucked in nooks around the fireplace and stacked on the windowsills of the bathroom. Boxes of new books were stacked next to the staircase. One of the beds was held up by thick, hardback reference books.
As each book in Hay has a story of its own Emma thought it would be fun to go out and discover some of the quirky, obscure, valuable, bizarre, and must-read books. Each day she will post a single book introduced by someone in Hay.
