MASSIMODECARLO is pleased to present Only the Ashes, Sanford Biggers’ latest solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition premieres a new development in his practice; the sculptural series Chimera, alongside seminal examples from the bodies of work the artist has been evolving over the last two decades. 

Sanford Biggers’ works travel across history and place, compressing time that has elapsed and the spaces in-between by drawing together disparate aesthetics, materials and concepts. Despite their differences, these elements are not used in juxtaposition to one another within his works, but are united by the denominator common to all, human interaction, which is tangible in all his work, whether literally in human form or conceptually. By featuring different series of works side by side, Only the Ashes reflects the important role that syncretism plays within Biggers’ practice.
