The Art of Sculpture

3-Dimensional Art, Installation, Ceramics, and Ancient to Contemporary Sculptural Forms.
Brian Jungen
Protoype for New Understanding #5, 1999. Nike Air Jordans (athletic shoes), human hair, 22” x 27” x 5” (56 x 69 x 13 cm).


Jungen has stated that it is a deliberate choice to create works out of materials produced by the sports industry; an industry that appropriates Aboriginal terminology, such as the team names The Chiefs, Indians, Redskins, and Braves. However Jungen’s work is not exclusively tied to his heritage. He has stated “My involvement with my family and traditions is personal—it’s not where my art comes from.”
