For Art Basel 2017 Unlimited Sector, Pilar Corrias Gallery will present Fraught Times: For Eleven Months of the Year it’s an Artwork and in December it’s Christmas (July), 2017 by artist Philippe Parreno.
This is the final work from the series Fraught Times – 11 cast stainless steel trees in total – which began in 2008 for the inaugural exhibition of Pilar Corrias Gallery. Each tree in the series is unique. The trees are titled after 11 months of the year excluding December, when the object stops being perceived as an artwork and becomes, in actuality, a decorative Christmas tree.
Fraught Times: For Eleven Months of the Year it’s an Artwork and in December it’s Christmas (July), 2017 is the largest, most hyperreal tree from the series, physically retaining the delicacy of the pine needles of a real tree. Over 100 decorations adorn this tree making it completely different in design from the others.
