Artist Profile: Marta Minujín on Demystifying the Statue of Liberty

Artist Marta Minujín describes how seeing the Obelisk of Buenos Aires on her return to Argentina from New York many years ago prompted a series of large-scale works that demystify popular monuments or cultural myths. Minujín traces the evolution of these works from horizontal metal structures to food that people can take and eat. For New York, she envisioned a Statue of Liberty made from McDonald’s hamburgers—an idea that she believes can still be realized with a different type of food.
