Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Congo-born, France-based artist Olivier de Sagazan integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance into a very unique hybrid practice!

This morning we take a look through a collection of some of his sculptures including this 2011 piece titled Q Confucius No.2, a 'massive silica-gel, mechanical bust of an unclothed Confucius rests in a rectangular pool.'
