Art Basel Miami Beach

6 – 9 December 2018

Derek Fordjour

Derek Fordjour's Backroom was a site-specific installation that departed from the clinical, austere feel of a convention-centre booth in favor of a transformed backlot environment evoking both a shanty-styled stockroom and a backside to a traveling show. Built up with locally sourced materials including loose pea gravel and corrugated steel, Fordjour created a space for his paintings — simultaneously beautiful and wrought — that brought together the artist's studies of game, carnival and sport to the venue of a prominent art fair.
