Sanford Biggers: “Cosmic Voodoo Circus”
44-19 Purves Street, Long Island City, NY
September 10 - November 28, 2011
an exhibition of new work by Sanford Biggers commissioned through SculptureCenter’s Artist in Residence program and Creative Time.
“In Cosmic Voodoo Circus, Biggers exploits the carnival aesthetic to address profound issues of identity, the power of objects, as well as spiritual and cultural transmigration. At the center of Biggers’ installation is a new video titled Shake, the second part in an odyssean trilogy about the formation and dissolution of identity.”
Part one of this trilogy will be on view later in the month, beginning September 23, 2011 as part of “Sanford Biggers: Sweet Funk - an Introspective” at the Brooklyn Museum of Art
