Armleder's early “Furniture Sculpture” Untitled (FS80) (see also 3) makes reference to the sculptural ensembles of the early American Minimalists, but their idealism is offset by the use of a trivial piece of furniture, in this instance, a table found at a flea market. The perforated panel consciously evokes abstract painting while simultaneously trivializing it and dealing with it on an ironic level, given that the panel is a common material used for sound insulation.
