A Closer Look: Men
Nina Beier’s permanent sculpture Men is the latest subject of the gallery's ongoing series A Closer Look, which focuses on a single artwork or exhibition. Beier was invited to produce a work in the town of Nieuwpoort, Belgium, on the occasion of the 2018 Beaufort Triennial, an exhibition set along the country’s coastline. Her contribution springs from the sculptural tradition of public equestrian statues found throughout Belgium. The figures in Beier’s tableau appear to either emerge onto the shore from the depths or are consumed by the ocean that increasingly engulfs them as the tide goes in and out.
