A view of Marianne Vitale's new Frieze Projects piece being constructed

The artist Marianne Vitale is having a breakout spring, with a massive sculptural installation in the Frieze Art Fair's Frieze Projects section—an excerpt of an old tobacco barn she sourced from upstate New York, bringing an emblem of rusticity and the frontier to the blue-chip proceedings—paired with a new show at Zach Feuer Gallery, "Diamond Crossing," that places railroad tracks in a crisscrossing pattern throuhout the space. Prior to the debut of these shows, we stopped by her spacious Long Island City studio for a view of her work in progress, and a glimpse of her raw and aggessive artistic process.

More raw material, with a trio of Douche Bag sculptures in the foreground—bronze casts of the unfairly maligned hygienic device.
