Los Angeles-based artist Mateo Tannatt uses sculpture as a platform for performance, video, photography and painting. He creates landscapes of objects and props that are often brought to life by actors and performers. For Frieze Projects, Tannatt will craft seven individual sculptures that interrupt and punctuate the fair. Each of these seven situations will be activated by scripted performances and written texts. Viewers will be invited to sit and use the sculptures as part of the performance. Based on the subjective association of color, and the effect of public sculpture, this project not only offers viewers a resting point but also provides temporary stages for public theater, bringing the monumental into the everyday.
