Metropolis in collaboration with G Fine Art is please to present Ledelle Moe’s massive Memorial (Collapse) in the commercial ground floor space at the recently completed building at 1520 14th Street. Memorial (Collapse) is composed of 3 massive heads that seem to be relics of history, but unlike most relics, their humanity is intact and is the content of the installation.
Moe’s Memorial is about memory, permanence and impermanence, strength and vulnerability. They confront our contemporary loss of life and artifact. Her work refers to conflict around the world where cultural iconic symbols are destroyed or plundered while the faces of the living are lost. At the same time she engages with her own personal past, growing up in conflict-ridden South Africa. Moe describes her work as a continual reinterpretation of past experiences via memory and imagination.
The artwork can be seen 24/7, and will remain on view through September 20th.
