Perfected Pillow

Andrea Zittel, Perfected Pillow

Perfected Pillow is one of Andrea Zittel’s earlier works in which she experimented with domestic spaces and functional objects. Examining the “art of lifestyle,” Zittel’s interest lies in the consumption of home goods and the concept of home “improvement.” In Perfected Pillow, Zittel takes our idea of the typical head pillow and upgrades it to a full-bodied, rug-like and fringed body pillow.

“The most important thing for me, is the way the work functions on a psychological level, how it explores desires, fantasies, or even fears.”
