‘Contemplating Time’ Installation Shots

Marvin Francis’ exhibition, “Contemplating Time,” ¬†highlighted the incarcerated artist’s minutely detailed papier-mach√© sculptures. Crafted from toilet paper and glue, Francis’ work engages the unique cultural, psychological, and sexual realities of prison life, but also employs a prison aesthetic to explore concepts that are universal–the passage of time, and the fear of death. His work was on display at Institute 193 from March 8 – May 5, 2012.
