Portfolio (Sanford Biggers Oracle)

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Sanford Biggers
Oracle at Rockefeller Center

Oracle is a continuation of Biggers’ recent Chimera sculpturesa series of figurative sculptures created by combining African masks and European figures that explore historical depictions of the body and their subsequent myths, narratives, perceptions, and power.

The Chimera sculptures specifically challenge the associated cultural and aesthetic assumptions about their source material while acknowledging the often dubious origins of the original objects themselves. This sculpture will be the artist’s largest installation to date.

MASK ACTIVITIES:
MASK provided Creative Direction for the hybrid (physical to virtual) aspects of the installation.
