Studio Drift deconstructs everyday objects for Materialism series at Frieze LA

Amsterdam-based Studio Drift “de-produced” a bicycle and a pencil into the chunks of the materials used to make them for an exhibit at the inaugural Frieze Art Fair in Los Angeles.

The studio deconstructed the manmade items to highlight the amount of natural resources and effort involved in the extraction, labour and manufacturing of their production – a matter Studio Drift believes is typically taken for granted.

“Confronting the viewer on a very elementary level with the objects that surround them, this new work inspires fresh contemplation of the raw materials at our daily disposal,” said the studio. “We make clear how much of the matter within these objects is extracted from the earth.”
