An artist who has often showed the works of other artists, Macuga has built several elaborate exhibition infrastructures that hark back to early visionaries. Cave lined a 1960s gallery/apartment with crumpled packing paper to display paintings and objects, whilst a paper tepee housing a collection of Inuit paintings became ice-white Iceberg. Artist as curator as exhibition set-designer. These models are scaled recreations with works re-made by Macuga.
