Mark Handforth's Flagpole

Mark Handforth
Flagpole

Sculpture

Kayne Griffin Corcoran

Specifically created for the exhibition at the Museo D’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Flagpole is a huge flag flipping on a crooked pole that, in spite of its considerable dimension, conveys a sense of precariousness, suggesting the absurdity of territorial disputes, the impossibility of conquest, or even one last ditch-call for help.

The base or the foundation can vary with the installation or owner as well as the selection of the flags displayed. In this installation at Kayne Griffin Corcoran, the artist chose the American, California Republic and Buddhist prayer flags to suggest a possible formula for peace.
