Monument (Tripartite Arch)
Monument (Tripartite Arch)
Found wood moldings, wood, plaster, hardware

Part of a solo exhibition on Manhattan's Lower East Side, this artwork references the Renaissance Revival tripartite windows that make up the upper floors of the nearby Rivington House. Originally a school, and later a healthcare facility for HIV and AIDS patients, the building has been embroiled in development-related scandal since its sale in 2016.

This work is made of wood salvaged from a local gut renovation of a 1895 building, along with delicate plaster arches fashioned after the historic building. This piece uses the Rivington House scandal as a symbol of backward government, historic beauty and unbridled capitalism.
