grand theft art

In the previous wet paintThe joke I hear, every time I hear of art theft, catches my eye. That’s right, the Thomas Crown The narrative will always be tempting to me. However, it definitely brings me number Satisfaction when a piece of art is stolen before it can be cherished, consumed, or otherwise tested. Unfortunately, this happened last week in Miami For the conceptual artist Gillian Mayer.

It’s funny because it goes beyond storage theft, artwork theft, and grand theft auto,” she told me over the phone, before explaining that it’s not really the case. ha ha Funny, but more ironic. Meyer has worked for the past four years on a piece entitled low resolutionwhich was a kind of gesamtkunstwerk Created in a refurbished trailer. “When you open the trailer, you’re thrown into this immersive, abstract little house that takes cues from the survival and preparedness culture I’ve been looking for,” she said.

Mayer funded the piece through local grants, and estimates that at least $20,000 of materials were put into it. After its debut, the piece was to serve as a sort of mini-residence program. It was taken from where it was parked Islamoradawhich is next to largo key And about an hour and a half outside of Miami.

In the current situation, the artist offers a reward for finding the piece during which she was scheduled to unveil Art Basel Miami Beach in December. Meyer predicted, “I hope he comes back. I wonder if they stole it knowing what was inside, or if it was just a very strange surprise.”
