Barbara Kruger, "NATURE / CULTURE" Vase
Created for the Performa 2020 Telethon, ten vases from the limited edition of 100 will be offered during the 2021 Telethon. Following her celebrated Performa 17 Commission Untitled (Skate), Barbara Kruger has created her first vase. A delicate object made from porcelain, imprinted with text CULTURE and NATURE in black and blue, continuing her sharp critique of the structures of power and the role of culture in a Capitalist consumerist society. Kruger began to perfect her signature style in the 1980s, using Futura Bold typeface to print aphorisms on black and white photographs; and to later produce large scale public facades, architecturally driven wall wraps, multi-channel videos, images, and projects that blur the line between items and art objects.
