The Garden of Yellow & Pink is a solo sculptural installation in the project room.
As viewers we’re seeing the garden in the past and the future simultaneously. As an exercise in unity and conflation, Nigon plays upon the Garden of Adam and Eve and the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament. The figurative subjects reference sideshow performers from the early 20th century; Nigon’s sculptures are created from plastics, foam and resins, as well as other recycled pieces. One can find freedom by observing the interplay of organic and geometric forms.
