Tauba Auerbach‘s ‘Quarry’ installation is currently on view at the corner of Gansevoort and Washington streets where the Whitney Museum expects to open their downtown branch in 2015. “Using red, yellow, and blue safety netting, she created a multicolored interlace along the chain-link fence, on the Gansevoort Street-side of the construction zone.  On the Washington Street side, she double-layered the chain-link, and added a bright blue tarp as a backdrop. Using photographic decals, she also transformed the trailers housed behind the fence into giant slabs of marble, cleverly referencing the nature of the materials to be mined within.”
