New Orleans Biennial Satellite Project, New Orleans, USA
The 3rd of May Arts Inc.
Upon the invitation of The Third of May, Majestic was produced for a Satelite project of the New Orleans Biennale. Majestic takes its name from a local New Orleans funeral home where the piece was originally conceived. Majestic is a satellite-shaped structure constructed from authentic New Orleans street lamps uprooted by Hurricane 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.
