IMA at Surfers

13 August–07 September 201113 Aug–07 Sep 2011

Australian sculptor Rodney Glick is now based in Bali, where he works with local woodcarvers to create sculptures that conflate ancient Hindu imagery and contemporary imagery, the sacred and the profane. His Everyone sculptures present ordinary people as multi-armed, multi-headed deities in yogic poses and holding symbolic attributes. Glick seems to be making the point that, just as the Hindu gods possess human frailties, we possess a god-like capacity for love, courage, and vengeance.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
