We Have Agency. ceramic, steel, fiber. Cannupa Hanska Luger. 2016

"As living beings, we all have myths and tales that describe our lives being abused by monsters. These monsters are out of natural order and heroes rise from their torment to defeat them. Monster Slayers found in every culture to set out and sacrifice their life for the continuation of existence. Today, we are once again we are plagued by monsters. It is time to be the hero, each of us must be aware of what we can do in the place that we stand. So that a far future that remembers this era of monsters can sing the songs and dance the stories of our mystic ability to come together and become Monster Slayers." -Cannupa Hanska
