About This Project

Work on this piece began in NYC during a stint at Socrates Sculpture Park. The uncompleted work was then shipped and stored in Atlanta. A workspace was offered at Wade Sand and Gravel, and Antelumpen was completed along with Bouncing Bench at the Birmingham Museum of Art for solo show Industrial Jungle. With support from Dr. Sam Barker, Antelumpen was purchased by the museum and for many years lived in front of it. The sculpture was then moved to a spot on the west side of the city and promptly knocked over by one of the big tornadoes that hit in Spring 2011. The museum kindly offered the work back, and it is now awaiting repair repair and re-installation at a sculpture reserve in California.
