The FIAF Gallery presents Terra Amata, a specially commissioned installation by Brooklyn-based American sculptor NICK VAN WOERT. Known for transforming found objects and scavenged art materials into surreal, gravity-defying figures and shapes, the former architecture student borrows icons from the past and overlaps them with more familiar contemporary materials.

This new work makes visible a chronology of forms and ideas that reference the ideals of former generations, bridging classical sculpture to the Donner Party, Henry David Thoreau to Ted Kaczynski, and Pruitt-Igoe to 6221 Osage Avenue. The exhibition's title, Terra Amata, refers to a site in the South of France where it is believed that fire was used domestically for the first time.

The previous "Untitled" pictures are from Terra Amata work by Nick van Woert. A previous work of Nick van Woert, Poor Me, illustrates a quite similar concept but in a colorful version.
