In this work Styrofoam Cup Sculpture,Tara Donovan makes a beautiful space out of an everyday object. She has included many of these seemingly banal objects in her previous works such as rolls of tape, pencils and plastic cups. Her artworks are known for suggesting the wonders of nature and creating a sense of the sublime. As Nicholas Baume, the Institute of Contemporary Art’s chief curator, describes her work, “Tara’s work isn’t ironic. It actually takes up the discourse of Minimalism. It’s about creating a system, using a structure, and repeating incremental units that can go from the finite to the seemingly infinite.” For more information on Donovan’s work, click here.
