DESCRIPTION


The outdoor art installation, Monster, is artist Ivan Wong’s impassioned response to the increasing threats of natural and human-made disasters. A large enamel and vinyl billboard standing on the beach of Mantoloking, NJ, where the ocean breached the shore during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the artwork captures the luminescent and intersecting forces of sky and ocean, overlaid with the word “monster” in Japanese, which emerges on the shore like Godzilla. As the viewers move around the billboard and the light moves across it, the letters appear or disappear.

Monster is presented by the New York- and Los Angeles-based American fine art studio DANIELLE.
