Welcome II

May 29th, 2013

This set of sculptures by Raphael Zollinger was the most arresting piece I saw on the grounds of Pratt. According to the artist, this 2006 work was "a commentary and protest on recent events". The figures, their hands bound, are archetypal images, "symbols of the abuse humans visit on one another". The original installation featured an additional element: a neon sign proclaiming "Welcome".
