Double Agent White

Atelier Calder, Saché, France
The pavilion that Fornes designed and built while an artist-in-residence at the Atelier Calder in Saché, France, can be taken apart for storage. Although it is approximately 11 feet tall and 20 feet in diameter, the work can be broken up into sub-assemblies and packed in a 14-by-12-by-9-foot crate. Fornes’s fabrication files included information about how the project’s thousands of elements would be positioned on the aluminum sheets they were cut from.

Y/Surf/Structure, part of the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou, has more than 7,000 parts assembled with 32,000 rivets. The perforations here, and in other works by TheVeryMany, make the individual components easier to handle during installation, says Fornes. They also allow the flat aluminum sheets to be twisted into compound curves.

Plasti(k) Pavilion

St. Louis
Plasti(k) is made of 150 4-by-8-foot sheets of polyethylene held together by more than 1,300 bolts. Washington University architecture students helped fabricate and assemble the piece, which was installed in the spring and summer of 2011 as part of a playground they designed for the Botanical Heights neighborhood.
