Occupying MoMA PS1’s Duplex gallery, the installation will insert chalk, a pedagogical material to which she has re-turned throughout her career, in the building’s formerly scholastic space. Numerous rods of chalk will be lodged into the fissures and openings of the gallery’s brick walls from floor to ceiling, revealing the material’s inherent instability and fragility.
