A new installation at The Grace Building
By David Baskin
Curated by Tom Kotik
Using the interior of the iconic Grace Building as a point of reference, David Baskinhas created a variety of sculptural plinths that provides a counterpoint to the marble motifs that exist in the lobby. As an architectural modernist trope, marble is often used in contrast to a more minimal setting. Simplicity and clarity is often contrasted with the dynamic “all over” pattern of marble. The sculptural plinths will echo this idea by creating simple geometric forms with a palette of vibrant colors cast in urethane resin. Seemingly real, the marble structures are artificial, emphasizing the misleading nature of perception.
The sculptural forms will be arranged in a manner that will engage the pedestrian and will explore the cultural and social implication of the use of marble as a symbol of refined taste, wealth and power.
