Image of Untitled

Tony Feher , (1956–June 24, 2016)



Medium and Support: White wire coat hangers and wire
Credit Line: Museum purchase
Accession Number: 1999.22


A collector of things discarded, Tony Feher is best known for the conceptual sculptures he assembled from consumer detritus and everyday objects. While much of his art can be characterized by a minimalist aesthetic of repeated forms and rigid patterns, his sculptures are anything but detached from emotion and ideas. Explaining his attraction to simple objects, the artist said, “When you strip things bare, you allow them to take on the possibility for broader meaning than if you explained them. Reduction opens the work up.” In Untitled, thin wire coat hangers hanging mobile in the gallery hauntingly evoke the absent human body and its accouterments as well as the transience of life.
