Somewhere Between Art and Life
By Rachel Spence (taken from Financial Times)
posted: 08-21-09
There are times at Venice when you feel Marcel Duchamp
has a lot to answer for. The artist's infamous urinal not
only paved the way for the grand, imaginative gestures of,
say, Robert Rauschenberg - whose scrap-iron sculptures
are at the Peggy Guggenheim museum - but also for a
slew of self-indulgent installation art much of which is
currently taking up exhibition space in the city of Titian
and Tintoretto. The Scottish and Mexican pavilions prove
that Duchamp's legacy has not been wasted. In palaces
either side of the square of Santa Maria Formosa, Martin
Boyce and Teresa Margolles have produced visionary
subversions of the found-object genre. Although
concerned with radically different landscapes, the pair are
neurs , adept at revealing the back stories of their own
territories. Both conjure art out of matter that often slips
beneath our radar - the clandestine, uncanny spirits that
discreetly animate our everyday world. Boyce, a
42-year-old sculptor based in Glasgow, opens his show
with a path of stepping stones whose jagged course is
mapped by dulled-gold, edge-crisped replicas of fallen
autumn leaves. Above hangs a sculpture of plastic, interlocking, polygonal panels. These oblique, sail-like
shapes have been the leitmotif of Boyce's work since he saw them in a photograph of a pair of "concrete
trees" made by the French Cubist sculptors Jo
l and Jan Martel for the 1925 Decorative Arts Exhibition in
Paris. The Martels' work nourished Boyce's appetite for modernism. Since the mid-1990s, he had been
making sculptures that played on design icons such as Arne Jacobsen's Ant chair and the Eames brothers'
ESU storage unit. But the concrete trees' "perfect collapse of architecture and nature" nudged his work
beyond the urban interior.
Is This Recyclable?

Is This Recyclable?
An upcoming
exhibition at Under
Minerva, Brooklyn.
This group show
focuses on thirteen
artists who break
away from traditional
media and instead
explore materials that
are often overlooked
yet readily available.
By using readymade
and recyclable
materials the artists
are both directly
appropriating from the
materials purpose and
properties, literally
recycling these pieces
in the process.
The theme is
motivated by early
readymades of
