Revisiting Sanford Biggers
From a recent blog post on the Education Blog @ education.rma2.org
Art takes on a different life when it is placed in an alternative space. In our spiral staircase, Lotus was a heavy object that was magically suspended in space. Our context for the work was unique, and I felt that the image anchored the entire exhibition. At the Brooklyn Museum, Lotus was off to the side, but much more approachable. The proximity to the object allowed for a different type of investigation of the core meanings inherent in the work.
