Each morning during Miami Basel 2013 fair week, Bassel would visit an art fair to study the people in attendance, while making mental notes and taking a few photos. In the afternoon, she would return to her pop-up installation -- a raw, retail space on Española Way in South Beach. There, from memory, she would create portraits of art dealers, collectors and enthusiasts solely in duct tape on the cinder block, exposed brick and broken, sheet-rocked walls of her corner storefront.
This lot ships from Los Angeles, CA, US.
