“Filmed in early 2011, two of David Altmejd’s assistants describe the experience of working for the sculptor in his Queens, New York studio. Shown preparing new works for Altmejd’s 2011 show at Andrea Rosen Gallery, the assistants provide unique insight into Altmejd’s creative process. Time-lapse photography captures the team at work on the large-scale sculptures ‘The Vessel’ (2011) and ‘The Swarm’ (2011).
