Julia Dault
"Untitled 33, 11:30 AM--2:00 PM, November 5, 2013," 2013
Plexiglas, Formica, Everlast boxing wraps, and string
Collection Pérez Art Museum Miami
 
For this work commissioned by PAMM, Julia Dault worked directly in the gallery with industrially produced sheets of colored and mirrored Formica. Over the course of several hours, she bent and rolled this material, testing it to the point of breaking, using nylon ties which were eventually knotted and attached to the wall to hold the precarious structure in place. This piece is filled with expressive tension, as these materials resist their current configuration.  Its title, "Untitled 33, 11:30 AM--2:00 PM, November 5, 2013," identifies the number of this work in the series, followed by the date and time of its production.
