Artist Adam Parker Smith has opened a new exhibition at The Hole in Los Angeles. Dubbed ‘Crush,’ the new exhibition features an array of work that is quite the departure from his usual style. The show was inspired by Smith’s time living in Rome. The exhibition features a variety of sculptures that look like they have been smashed and crushed by a compactor.
Each statue stands at roughly one cubic meter and was made in collaboration with master carvers, a seven-axis reductive robot, and digital research teams at museums like the Uffizi. The collection features reimagined renditions of Apollo of Belvedere, Cupid Triumphant, to Bernini’s David. The sculptures aim to present a look at how marble sculptures were no different in capturing daily life as selfies are today.
