Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain” is enlarged and abstracted, incorporating forms derived from religious architecture and the human body. A portal allows viewers access to a quiet interior space, where white walls and rib-like arches frame the open sky. Duchamp’s urinal, once infamously placed inside a gallery, becomes a gallery itself.
