Sitting

Richard Artschwager, c. 1997 (installed 2006). Aluminum, zinc, sheet metal.


This reminds me of the seated figures at Abu Simbel on the Upper Nile. They built a dam on the river, so they had to move things. They needed the water. (They had to do it). It is an image and not a thing. The bumpiness of the surface slows down the looking: one sees not only the whole but the surface as well.
