Abandoned lamp post

STILL, 2014

June 4, 2014

Artist Matthew Hinçman is pleased to announce the installation of STILL, 2014. This site-specific sculpture depicts a cast-away hoodie sweatshirt lying on the ground, referencing the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in 2012. Affixed to an abandoned lamp-post base in the shadow of the 1871 West Roxbury Civil War Soldier’s Monument, in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood, STILL aims to provoke reflection on the legacy of racism, power, and privilege in the United States.

The sculpture’s location can be found on Google Maps here.
