Friday Photos: Silence and Time

April 22, 2011

She, Bojan Šarčević (Serbian, born 1974), 2010, Onyx, DMA, DMA/amfAR Benefit Auction Fund

Let me introduce She, a sculpture which will make its DMA debut on May 29 in the Silence and Time contemporary art exhibition.  Over the past week, I visited the DMA Web site at least a dozen times, and each time I encountered a detail image of this work.  It was not familiar to me.  With a little investigation, the case was quickly solved when I discovered that She is a recent acquisition.  The sculpture stands six feet and one-half inch tall and weighs more than a ton!  The side we see in the image is smooth and polished.  The opposite is rough and natural.  I wait with great anticipation to officially meet She, and spend a little time in silence contemplating its complexities, beauty, scale, and meaning.
