Ann Lorraine Labriola



In the tradition of Robert Smithson, Michael Heizer and Walter deMaria, Ann Lorraine Labriola has been creating monumental earthworks for over 30 years. Her “Stargazer” (1992) is the largest sculpted reef in the world and sits five miles off the coast of Key West. “Flaming Water Sculpture” (1985) was a special performance at sea consisting of 14 flaming pyramids set in the position of the constellation Aldebaren. She sees the site as vital to her work, which she describes as a kind of contemporary archaeology. Labriola lives in Key West, Florida.
