"Cabriole legs" refer to the legs of chairs or tables designed with the motif of animal legs. The term "Cabriole" originates from the French ballet term, meaning the shape of the legs during a leap, carrying the connotation of bouncing or leaping. Cabriole legs not only provide visual decoration but also bring lightness and nimble They are delicate yet sturdy legs, designed to be both elegant and functional, offering excellent mechanics. The ground beneath us sometimes feels shaky, from personal matters to societal situations. For this exhibition, five artists created feet (or feet-like ) that are nimble, delicate yet strong, and able to stand independently.
