Marianne Vitale

A monumental architectural fragment at the center of the fair evoking rural landscape

Known for her large-scale wooden sculptures of burnt bridges, barns and outhouses, Marianne Vitale’s work reflects upon contemporary American sculpture whilst conducting an investigation of vernacular art and architecture.

For Frieze Projects, Vitale installed a monumental architectural fragment at the center of the fair evoking rural landscape, putting into question old-fashioned traditions and values. A severed barn wall with window encouraged a vantage point into, or out of, the collapsed circumstance.
