Description: The Vanquished was created for the Beaux-Arts style stairwell at the New Orleans Museum of Art, built in 1911. Auguste Rodin's sculpture The Age of Bronze, 1877, formerly titled Le Vaincu, (the vanquished) typically resides on this ornate landing. This installation is an homage to Rodin's first publicly exhibited work and his second life size sculpture which brought him notoriety and scandal, critics could not believe it was sculpted, Rodin was accused of casting a body to achieve the realistic detail. Rodin describes his work not as posed gestures, but as actions in between movements. The animation is created from Rodin's point of view.
