This inflatable sculptural installation by Billie Grace Lynn features a grouping of white elephants, which carry vast meanings on their back. White Elephants have been long considered sacred in Asia. Their possession conferred great prestige but is also a huge and expensive burden. Referencing the “elephant in the room” the artist points out the aptness of the white elephant as a metaphor for our contemporary condition, “too expensive to sustain, too precious to surrender, and in a state of rapid change.”
This installation includes a grouping of three life-sized inflatable white elephants.
