Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris Acquired from the above by the present owner
"[The Statue of Liberty] is such a strong icon, tracing back to so many histories, and then just discovering the fragility of it... I thought it would be interesting to make something that people felt so familiar with, in all the different ways that people project on the sculpture, and try to destabilize your own thinking of it."
