Liliana Porter: Man with Axe

Liliana Porter's latest installation titled "Man with Axe" consists of a 3-inch-tall axe-wielding figurine smashing up a curving line of debris made from various objects found at flea markets and antique shops. In addition to the man with the ax, the sprawling piece is populated by dozens of tiny figurines. The cast of characters includes archetypes – soldiers, travelers, farmers, geishas, kings, a mariachi, a groom — as well as specific personalities. some of the people actively participate in clean up. some powerlessly contemplate the wreckage. others go about their business carelessly.
