Rita McBride produces post-Minimalist sculptures close to industrial design and modern architecture. Interested in the performatic situations derived from urban objects and elements, she incorporates them by altering their dimensions, colours and materials. By introducing them into the museum’s artificial spaces, they are imbued with a new artistic condition. In Servants and Slaves (Domestic), spaces and elements at the service of the city (pipes, kitchens, garages) remind us of the role of the class, race and gender struggle in industrialization. And in White Elephant (Wall), McBride turns an air conditioning unit, usually located on the roofs of the city, into a luminous and unpolluted object. Its title references the English expression meaning a lost cause or useless object.
