Bill Reid | Brian Jungen

*Jungen’s “Prototypes” series transforms Nike Air Jordan sneakers into masks using the colours and styles of the Aboriginal Northwest CoastOf his work, the artist says: “I wanted to address commercialism and the fetishization of trainers and aboriginal art. I also wanted to address the division of labour, the production of goods and the relationship between the First and Third Worlds. There is a developing world within the First World on First Nations reserves.” - via dailyartfix
