Brian Jungen's Air Jordan Sculpture Exhibition

Brian Jungen's Air Jordan Sculpture Exhibition
Artist Brian Jungen has just opened his own exhibition in Ontario, Canada, using repurposed Jordans to create sculptures. Entitled Brian Jungen: Friendship Centre, the installation encompasses several of the artist’s unique sculptures and masks constructed out of Air Jordans and even Golf Bags. It's pretty wild, but it apparently has a message too. 
 

 
Brian is known for touching on the themes around identity. Being of mixed European and Indigenous backgrounds, the artist constantly explores messages around cultural inequality, the environment and the craftsmanship of the Indigenous community. His colourful 3-D forms showcase various sliced-up sneakers in deconstructed shapes, providing subtle commentary on the consumption of fashion and hyped-up energy around certain footwear.
 
If you happen to be in Toronto from now until August 25th, definitely go see the exhibition, Otherwise check out some of the sculptures right here.
