Taking his work to the nature-filled habitat of Rio de Janeiro, Tofer Chin's latest art installation is titled Fourteen Black. It contrasts the wild surroundings with man-made black triangles in order to emphasize the existence of darkness.
Amid the bright, green foliage, the Fourteen Black art installation is most definitely a stark departure from forestry. Like "living and breathing souls, ghosts, spirits, voids, shadows," as the Los Angeles artist describes them, these pieces haunt the ground of the Parque Lage.
Made out of wood, each piece in the Fourteen Black art installation was coated in acrylic for a rather spooky matte finish. In fact, they almost look digital.
Part of Rojo's Nova project, the Fourteen Black art installation will run until April 30, 2011.
