DESCRIPTION

Sanford Biggers is an interdisciplinary artist who works in film/video, installation, sculpture, music, and performance. Biggers has achieved international prominence over the last decade with a diverse body of work that explores themes of identity, race, American history, and spirituality, often by blending installation and performance. In Codex, a recent project, Biggers continues to probe these themes through another stylistic departure: painting on historical quilts, many of which were gifts to the artist from descendants of slave owners. An L.A. native, he has lived and worked in New York City since 1999.
