Lecture Series - Dasha Kelly

Dasha Kelly, a former Pfister Narrator, will present "Embedded Language," a discussion on perspective, projection and the impact of personal story as it relates to Sanford Biggers' BAM (Seated Warrior), 2017. 

This powerful piece is part of a series where the artist marks and mutilates wooden African "power" figures, created for the tourist trade, then casts them in bronze, to both hide and exaggerate the violence done to the original.  Biggers' work refers to the history of killings of unarmed African Americans.  The serene pose of Warrior contrasts with the violence done to its body; this jarring juxtaposition is at the heart of Bigger's work.
