In the Twenty-First Century, many bemoan the fact that art has been reduced to merely a party decoration or the backdrop for a Selfie. Thukral & Tagra amplified this regret to monumental proportions and created two wings, seemingly carved from ancient stone, for the viewer to inhabit. A pair of footprints marked on the floor guides the participant to stand between the wings, in effect taking on a heroic stance within the sculpture for the sake of the camera. These faux-stone wings masquerade as ancient monoliths from a forgotten civilization, one known to us from the back lot of a Hollywood film set.
