Art Basel just ended it’s annual show. This year, instead of focusing on just the art on display, Tirtzah Bassel decided to create “an installation that uses duct tape to replicate the people and environments” of the Miami art fair. hyperallergic.com writes:
None of her duct tape work replicates artworks from any of the fairs; rather, she takes photographs and uses her memory to re-create floor plans, booths, patrons, visitors, and dealers — in surprising amounts of detail. From a woman’s leopard-print high heels to a man’s colorful striped tie, she handles the tape in a painterly way, using small pieces to make patterns and giving texture to hair, clothing, and furniture.
