We will be exhibiting “Elucidation V”, a site-specific installation by Porkchop
Porkchop will create an evolving installation that presents the viewer with visions of futuristic antiquities, where the artist creates sculptural versions of esoteric idolatry reminiscent of past civilizations.
Through re-appropriating imagery from multiple cultures; the artist creates a new, yet familiar version of religious iconography. Building on these themes of religion and mythology, Porkchop has created an installation that combines elements of design with sculpture and re-purposed found objects, giving the viewer the opportunity to experience the visuals of this quasi-religion.
Through the re-purposing of the found objects, the artist gives them a new narrative, with new identity and purpose, which is a practice that plays on themes of religious augmentation. The viewer is often left with a possible new mythology reminiscent of past doctrines.
This is the fourth year that Porkchop will be creating an installation at SCOPE Miami Beach. “Elucidation V” will feature 40 new works by Porkchop, including three new large scale sculptures that represent the artists vision of “deities” and “effigies”.
