Sciapode , 2014

Papier-mâché, cardboard, acrylic paint, flame-resistant fabric , Duration Variable


Performed in an abandoned lot in Olde Kensington, the Sciapode rests and seeks shade using the shadow of its enlarged foot, as described by Pliny the Elder in his Natural History. Wearing protective headgear, the Sciapode attempts to jump but is inevitably confronted by the limitations of its gross disproportions.
