Dementia And The Arts

Created from an old metal medicine cabinet, the piece has a buffalo skull image on its glass. On the top shelf inside is a pile of empty fired brass cartridges. On the bottom is the piece that gives the show its name, a pile of ceramic cigarette butts, created by New Mexico-based, North Dakota-raised Cannupa Hanska Luger. Again the commentary on death and destruction can’t be missed.
