While Others Attack

2016

Six bronze sculptures, human figures 100 x 93 x 76 cm each, dog figures 57 x 49 x 44 cm each
While Others Attack is made up of a series of bronze sculptures. These abstract-figurative sculptures are based on archival photographs of people being attacked by police dogs during historical protests from South Africa’s Cape Town to Alabama’s Birmingham during the Civil Rights Movements. Cast in bronze, While Others Attack prompts associations with public monuments or aristocratic busts, and suggests perpetual struggle.
