Los Elefantes Blancos

I begun a new piece > Trois éléphants blanc ça trompent énormément > Three white elephants dupe a lot. Ok mean nothing in english… Anyway, it’s French popular humoristic slang expression. But for me the thing is realy interresting is the point that in Colombia a “White elephant” is a verbal expresion to designate an unfinished Building ( sometime huge one ). I found it was a sort of allegory a great image. So i plan to make three sculpture and show them as an installation : a very small one, a medium one, and a human size one (making one at real size will be a goal, actually it’s impossible, or maybe the ideal will be to paint real elephants in white an making a huge picture of it…)

see above the structure > iron wire, clay, shellac, cotton rope.

  1. When they first opened the shopping center called Hollywood & Highland in LA I thought they might regret decorating it with white elephants.

    Business seems good there, now, so I guess they knew what they were doing. The white elephants at Hollywood and Highland are an homage to the sets from the DW Griffith film, ‘Intolerance,’ by the way.
