New York

Installation View: Nyugen E. Smith, “Spirit Carriers,” Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, TX, 2020—2021

Sean Horton is pleased to present an installation of “Spirit Carriers” by Nyugen E. Smith, which were recently the subject of a solo project at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Smith began making the Spirit Carriers in 2016 as vessels to carry and protect the spirits of unarmed people of color killed by the police, until, as the artist says, “the spirits can go where they need to go.” Suspended from the ceiling, the sculptures seem to float in space, like eccentric, improvised air balloons.
