Jeannie Thib
Column. 2011

02.12.11 – 17.01.12

Column incorporates thirty-six identical waterjet cut polystyrene components that are based on the design of an 18th-century tile from the collection of the Maison Patrimoniale de Barthète in France. The subsequent three-dimensional form is “extruded up” in stacked layers from a plan view of the two-dimensional design. This installation for *QueenSpecific is one of several recent works that use decorative motifs as building blocks in grid based, modular constructions. These works examine relationships between ornament and architecture, original and copy.
