The Lot

The Lot: Guided Men

February 2—August 9, 2008


Baptiste Ibar

“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power, we have guided missiles and misguided men.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Baptiste Ibar takes his inspiration for his installation from this quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Placed around The Lot are ghostly soldiers — shadows of the men and women, past and present, who are misguided into war by corrupt leaders. This is a small prayer to those soldiers. This installation grew over the course of three months with new elements added by Ibar.
