AJ Fosiks Triacontahedron of 30 Wooden Animal Sculptures

Ich bin seit ein paar Jahren ganz großer Fan von AJ Fosiks Holzschnitzereien die irgendwo zwischen Designertoy-Optik und Totems, ich finde so ziemlich alles von ihm ziemlich großartig. Jetzt zeigt er neue Arbeiten in der Jonathan LeVine-Gallery und im Zentrum der Ausstellung steht wohl obiger Rhombentriakontaeder aus 30 Tierkopf-Skulpturen. Großartig!

In this exhibition, Fosik explores the idea that humanity faces an inherent struggle between its dualistic nature—a physical self and a symbolic self. Works in the show are greatly inspired by The Denial of Death, a 1973 Pulitzer Prize-winning work of psychology and philosophy by Ernest Becker. The book describes human civilization as an elaborate defense mechanism against the knowledge of our own mortality, which in turn acts as the emotional and intellectual response to our basic survival instinct.

Against the Infinite includes three-dimensional wall-mounted works and freestanding sculptures as well as a large installation. The installation features 30 individual animal heads on diamond-shaped panels which, when arranged together, form an impressive 30-sided geometric shape known as a rhombic triacontahedron (a convex polyhedron with 30 rhombic faces).
