Description

Rita McBride is a US-American artist whose installations explore cultural and sociological issues using the language of architecture. At first sight, the sculptures and installations are composed of recognizable daily objects – machines, steps, tubes, even water towers – that transport us to a standardized world, where repetition itself establishes a code that facilitates comprehension. However, the familiarity of form is disturbed by the materials used – a car made of raffia, tubes out of marble or ficus leaves modelled in Murano crystal – producing a sensation of unease and uncertain significance. This exhibition catalog includes a photographic essay by the artist and photographer Anne Pohlmann capturing the way in which the museum’s activity changes the architecture of its space over the course of a year.
