Interview by Danielle Durchslag.
The artist Petah Coyne is best known for her large scale sculptures, made, in part, from the unconventional materials she obsessively gathers. These materials include wax, wire, silk flowers, taxidermy animals, Venetian velvet, and human hair.
Major art institutions across the world, including the Whitney Museum, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art, own her work.
She is currently preparing for a large solo exhibition at Galerie Lelong for the fall of 2018.
