Artist Kyle Tata made this photograph while working as an art handler for a major institution in town. The collector wanted to commemorate this inspiration in the production of the frame. When she delivered the piece, she also brought a shipping crate that was used for another work in her collection. We salvaged the plywood center panels of the crate which had stencils indicating the orientation and fragility of the work and milled them into 1” x 1/8” strips which we inlaid into a frame made from maple europly. The ply’s of the europly show on the face and on the internal spacers in a nod to the humble, functional materials of artworld logistics.
