Since the mid-1980s, Leirner has amassed the ephemeral and incidental products of consumer culture, and reappropriated them into visually compelling sculptures and installations that demand to be both seen and read. Through their seriality and bold accents of colour, her work references both the history of Brazilian Constructivisim as well as the legacy of Arte Povera and Minimalism.” – White Cube For more information also click here

    Thank you so much for the post. Just to let you know that the ties sewn together and the small papers with round dots of colors are not mine… I didn’t do these two. All other works are 100% mine! Thank you again.

    • Dear Jac, So sorry about that! We have removed them.
      We love your work. If you are interested, we would very much like to send you some questions for an interview? All very best, the Fat Nancy team.
