Making Art out of Waste with El Anatsui

To see more photos and videos from El Anatsui’s sculptures, explore the Bass Museum of Art location page and browse the #elanatsui hashtag on Instagram.

Ghana sculptor El Anatsui finds inspiration in the waste caused by modern consumption. He creates colorful wall sculptures out of discarded aluminum bottle caps, seals and labels produced by local distilleries in Nigeria, where he’s lived for most of his career.

El Anatsui’s current exhibit, Gravity and Grace, features twelve monumental sculptures on show at Miami’s Bass Museum of Art (@bassmuseumofart).

Next, the exhibit will be installed in other institutions across the United States, each time with a unique approach: El Anatsui encourages those installing the pieces to influence them by squeezing, stretching or reshaping the sculptures to best fit the space and context.

This.

Right here.

This is the entire point of the series. ATLA is full of powerful and important ideas, but this is the single overarching theme that dominates the story and is its most important reason for being.

And that, guys… that is why the Lion Turtle works.

Because Aang was shaping his own destiny. The world, his friends, his own past lives were telling him one thing. They were telling him that it was his destiny to kill the Fire Lord. But Aang said no. It wasn’t his destiny to become a murderer and an assassin, to end a long and bloody war with more bloodshed, and he knew it. So he refused. He forged his own path. He searched for an answer. He went looking for another way. He asked everyone he could think to ask, and was given nothing.

And then, in the final hour… he asked the Lion Turtle.

He didn’t have to. He had already accepted that this time, he wasn’t going to be able to shape his own destiny, and he was just going to have to take what the world had handed him. But he wasn’t going to leave any single option unexplored, and so he asked the Lion Turtle, too.

He asked for an answer.

And his persistence was rewarded. He was given an answer. Because he searched for it and struggled for it, he was given the power to reshape his destiny.

That is the entire fucking point of the story.

The entire fucking point yo

"I’ve been making music my whole life, but I have the hardest time selling myself. And selling yourself is necessary if you want to be a successful artist. I can play something amazing, and I can say: ‘That’s just how I like it.’ But then I always lose my confidence, and say: ‘But who am I? And why does it matter what I like?’"

i’d rather give myself away and we all laugh and love at the random joy of something beautiful
