Lay of My Land
Andrea Zittel is most closely associated with the remarkable utopian structures she calls 'Wagon Stations' which explore what humans need for survival in different ways. Zittel’s projects are deeply rooted in her own daily life and delve into architecture, painting, photography, design, textiles, needlework and cooking.
At the beginning of the last decade Zittel founded A-Z West in the remote Californian desert and began creating the 'Wagon Station' units in which everyday activities such as sleeping, eating, cooking and socialising could become artistic actions.
Andrea Zittel: Lay of My Land is organised and was originated by Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall where it was presented from September – December 2011. It is curated by Richard Julin, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Magasin 3 with Andrea Zittel. The exhibition includes the production of a new, large-scale work entitled Lay of My Land and a new publication of the same name.
Lay Of My Land features images of Zittel's A-Z West project, along with her Uniform series, High Desert Test Sites, and the Wagon Station Project. The result is an up-to-date retrospective on this exciting artist.
