Sanford Biggers

Sanford Biggers (Los Angeles, 1970) vive e lavora a New York, negli Stati Uniti. 


La pratica di Biggers abbraccia una gamma di medium che comprendono film, installazioni, video, disegno, scultura e performance. Attraverso questi diversi linguaggi, l'artista sfida le nostre conoscenze sulla storia e i suoi simboli, combinando le tradizioni e l'estetica afroamericane con il simbolismo giapponese, i riferimenti mitteleuropei con le esperienze urbane contemporanee e la tecnica italiana con i ritmi della musica Hip Hop.
