Period & Style

Coming off solo exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum and MASS MoCA, Devorah Sperber was one of the featured artists in MAD's exhibition Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary. Devorah's work is all about the thoughtful, obsessive, repetitive use of commonplace objects to create complicated pieces of fine art. She had great company amongst the other artists in Second Lives, whose pieces were constructed from hundreds (or thousands, or tens of thousands) spoons, quarters, records, railroad spikes, eyeglasses and many other materials. In this video, Devorah explains how she constructs her pieces, as well as ideas on the nature of seeing that make her pieces so complex.
