Richard Tuttle - Masculin
wood and plastic laminate
32 inches (81 cm) x 32 inches (81 cm) x height variable
edition of 10
Masculin, by Richard Tuttle, is an interlocking system of moving tables in an edition of 10 sculptures. Each work consists of two plywood tables, one covered in faux-wood grain Formica laminate and the other revealing its natural grain. The tables raise and lower by a handmade system of gears, hovering at the intersection of art and functional object.
