Street Light, steel, wire, light

12 x 12 x 10 m

Collection of the National Gallery of Canada

Majestic was produced as a Satelite project of the New Orleans Biennale, and has now been permanently installed permanently at National Gallery of Canada.  The work is constructed from lampposts uprooted by Hurrican Katrina. Reassembled around a core made from steel, the street lights are resurrected. The work questions the notions of horizon, equilibrium and entropy, referring to the solidarity with which the people rebuilt the city of New Orleans.
