Stephanie Syjuco: Copystand / Frieze Projects, Frieze Art Fair 2009 / Interview

October 19, 2009

This is an interview with San Francisco-based artist Stephanie Syjuco. Stephanie Syjuco has conceived a project for this year’s Projects program of Frieze Art Fair. Her project called Copystand: an autonomous manufacturing zone is a workshop in which a small group of artists are making bootleg copies of other works exhibited in the fair, and an adjacent gallery stand where these works are presented for sale.

In this interview, Stephanie Syjuco talks about the idea behind her work Copystand, how it is received by the audience and gallerists, and her work in general.

For the group show “1969“, a large scale exhibition at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York that opens on Sunday 25, 20009, Stephanie Syjuco is reproducing two iconic works from MoMA’s collection: Joseph Beuys’ “Sled” and Robert Morris’s “Untitled” felt work, which will be presented at P.S.1 in lieu of the originals.

Frieze Projects is a programme of artists’ commissions realised annually at Frieze Art Fair. It is curated by Neville Wakefield and includes seven new projects as well as The Cartier Award and collaborations with this year’s partner institutions CAC Vilnius (Lithuania) and Arte Contempo (Portugal).

The seven artists commissioned to create site-specific work for Frieze Art Fair 2009 are Mike Bouchet, Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth, Ruth Ewan, Ryan Gander, Per-Oskar Leu, Monika Sosnowska and Stephanie Syjuco.
