ARTISTS: MARK HANDFORTH AND A COAT HANGER

COAT HANGER 2010 

FROM THE 'SCULPTURE NOW' SHOW AT  EVA PRESUNHUBER

For those of you who made it to the far to hectic Frieze Art Fair, you would have most likely come across a piece by Mark Handforth, represented by Gavin Brown's Enterprise, based in NY's West Village. One of Marks most recognizable qualities is to turn an everyday object and   make it a piece of art, with the help of super sizing and the environment it sits in.
The 'Coat Hanger' stands an impressive 3 metres tall by 3 metres wide, it's not something easily missed and received a lot of positive reviews at the fair. The simplicity of the concept, the movements of the metal and the sheer size made it our top pick at Frieze.
