Catalogue Note

"My work does function, well, at least initially. That fact can't be edited out. It's good sport to perch one's art on the cusp between usefulness and uselessness. It doesn't get resolved until somebody is there, present. The body is essential to my work." - Richard Artschwager, 2002
