MOMA PS1/SHARJAH ART FOUNDATION

Lara Favaretto

Published by MoMA PS1/Sharjah Art Foundation
Edited by Peter Eleey.

The installations and audio, sculptural, and kinetic works of Italian artist Lara Favaretto (born 1973) attempt to reconcile failure and aspiration. A sense of resignation to the forces of decay and obsolescence runs throughout her work--most visibly in her minimal cubes made of confetti, which decompose during the period of their display. Favaretto often recycles elements from previous installations as new works, reusing discarded industrial materials, and encasing found paintings in loose tapestries of wool yarn. The memorial form is directly evoked in a series that the artist calls “momentary monuments,” which loosely adopt but also subvert the vernacular of public sculpture. Favaretto often represents degeneration through machines: car wash brushes whirl repeatedly, wearing themselves down against metal plates; a platoon of compressed air cylinders randomly empties itself. This volume, published for Favaretto’s exhibition at MoMA PS1, is her first monograph.
