This winter I’m pleased to announce the publication of my much-anticipated monograph, which encompasses everything from my early works to my site-specific installations and exhibitions with Cristin Tierney Gallery. This monograph really shows the breadth and progression of my work, spanning not only several years but also a great variety of scale in my practice, from individual cubes to monumental mountain ranges. In addition, it documents many of the people and institutions I’ve been fortunate enough to work with, such as Florencia Minniti, the Bruce Museum, SiTE:LAB, MOCA Tucson, Florian Altenburg, Paul Amenta, Mathias Kessler and many more. Essays by Joe Fig, Matthias Neumann, Muriel Pérez and Anne-Marie Russell comprise additional features of the monograph, which would not have been possible without the hard work of editor Julie Krienik and designer Brian Sisco, not to mention the generous support of Cristin Tierney. The monograph debuted with much success at UNTITLED Miami in December, and I am excited to be bringing copies with me to Mexico for ZONA MACO next month. Copies are also available through Cristin Tierney Gallery.
My talented friend, Marc Lins journeyed to Grand Rapids with me to take official photos of Spire. Here he is on the roof.
On this brightly lit day in Grand Rapids, the shadows cast contrasted greatly over the contours of the Third Elevation of Spire.
I have been so honored and pleased to be invited to participate in SiTE:LAB‘s artistic vision for ArtPrize. They were able to transform an abandoned building at 2 East Fulton Street into a beautifully curated arts exhibition. I cannot express enough gratitude towards Paul Amenta, Tom Clinton, and the rest of the SiTE:LAB crew and volunteers. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and dedication.
My eldest brother, Hans, (I am the youngest of seven) came to visit from Austria and see Spire. I am so glad that he and I could spend some time together after the competition was over.
The way that people engage with my work is very important to me. I want them to have a new experience in a space that they would not have had without the installation of my work. What different architectural vantage points can one find within the space?
