鯨魚骨頭,是嗎?

DC有免錢又精彩的眾多博物館,是這個城市讓我最嚮往的一點。在進入博物館之旅之前,猜猜看照片中的這隻鯨魚骨頭是什麼東西做的?

難得小旅行上一篇“美國的奧林帕斯山—Capitol Hill @ Washington DC

作品的名稱叫做"Shapeshifter",是Brian Jungen 2000年的作品. Made by white polypropylene plastic chairs.

Brian Jungen (b. 1970, Dunne-za First Nations/Swiss-Canadian) uses mass-produced goods to make sculptures that are simultaneously fake and authentic, playful and political, common and extraordinary.

In Strange Comfort, a major exhibition organized by the National Museum of the American Indian, Jungen reassembles plastic chairs—hacked apart but still undeniably chairs—into a whale skeleton. Suitcases take the form of a possum, a crocodile, a shark. Expensive sneakers become Northwest Coast-style masks. Golf bags become totems. Jungen charges ordinary, useful objects with layers of meaning, exploring and transgressing the boundaries of what they had been and what they’ve become, riffing on Indian imagery, pop culture, consumerism, and obsession in the process.

To Fen,
厲害,答對了!

To 阿芳,
塑膠椅的確是正確答案。

To 白目咪嗽,
你是參觀過這項特展,還是花時間做了網路偵探呢?很厲害,找到這個展覽的資訊。
