Tara Donovan‘s process-driven work explores how materials behave, as she re-imagines the potential of everyday things. Her sculptures and large-scale installations build on the transparency and malleability of her chosen materials, translating objects such as plastic straws, Styrofoam cups, straight pins, rubber bands, and index cards into transcendent forms and environments. Her work is typically untitled, but even in its open interpretation suggests an elegant biomimicry of organic forms and infinitely repeating systems.
Donovan’s many accolades include the prestigious MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award (2008); and first annual Calder Prize (2005), among others. For over a decade, numerous museums have mounted solo exhibitions of Donovan’s work including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2007-2008), UCLA Hammer Museum (2004), and Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (1999–2000).
