Carol Bove is known for her assemblages that combine found and made elements. Incorporating and fusing a wide range of domestic, industrial, and natural objects, her sculptures and paintings reveal the poetry of their materials. As the art historian Johanna Burton noted, “Bove brings things together not to nudge associative impulses into free play driven by the unconscious, but rather to conjure a kind of affective tangle that disrupts any singular, historical narrative.”

Bove’s earrings for GEMS AND LADDERS recreate the four light fittings that are placed outside the David H. Koch Theater in New York. The building was originally called the New York State Theater; it was built as part of New York State’s participation in the 1964-65 World’s Fair and is owned by the City of New York. The building’s architect was Philip Johnson, who united neoclassicism and modernism and was famously inspired by Mies van der Rohe.

Just in a few weeks time, the artist’s work will be presented in the Swiss Pavilion for the 57th Venice Biennale with the presentation being called “Women of Venice”.
