Henry Krusoe


On-site event June 1st

This Statue Contains a God will simulate an encounter with a trapped magical being, one who when free would be able to create mountains or bring down the moon, but appears before the viewer trapped and powerless within a corporeal form/prison. The statue will look somewhat like a damaged antique Roman statue or bust on a pedestal. It will look like a human torso with white/plaster/stone exterior, but lacking full/undamaged limbs. Its neck will be elongated and stretched to reference an old gramophone speaker and evoke light body horror or demonic entities. Inside the statue I’ll place a speaker which will play a monologue spoken in the voice of the trapped god. The monologue will shift between various moods and motives, transitioning from pleas, accusations, small talk, and cryptic chanting.
