Adrift Justin Peyser sculptures
From 01 July 2010 to 21 November 2010
Of the ten characters/symbols of Peyser displayed in the Venice exhibition there are some that refer to the lagoon city and these are: The Doge, Platform Shoe, Tricorno and Pot Belly Stove. The latter according to the artist could be a representation of a pregnant woman whose womb contains the alchemic principles of creation - water and fire. Another characteristic is the fact that sculptures are kept in position with a sand counterweight at their base but at the same time appear out to be leaning sideways, a seemingly representation of the diaspora and the hanging in balance between two native lands. Justin Peyser graduated at Harvard at the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies. From the start, he was interested in space in relation to architecture and in particular, to the suburbs and urban areas in disuse. He is currently engaged with an ethical bank to undertake projects to restore derelict urban areas in the city of New York (Bronx, Brooklyn and Newark).
