Currently residing in New York, Argentinian artist Marta Chilindron created two manipulable sculptures titled “Star” and “Tall” for the upcoming Frieze show and will be showing them in Booth DLG09. Vibrant and eye-catching – Marta’s sculptures are composed of fluorescent colors that play wonderfully with its highly geometric form. Check out Maggie Tookmanian’s sculpture “Gus” if Marta’s sculptural work caught your eye.
