Angela Lergo’s Winged Feet and Other Sculptural Installations

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

A body of work entitled aire was recently created by contemporary artist Angela Lergo. She is a performance artist located in Span who specializes in intrepretive sculpture. The winged feet of aire are made up of ground stone, synthetic resin, oil painting, steal, feathers, and marin salt. This iconic symbol of track and field originated from the Greeks gymnastic games. This same symbol featured here in her aire works once represented the messenger god of Mercury. Her other works depict the human figure, her interpretation of the soul, ritual, and other elements that remind the viewer of the endless complixities of social and technological implications.
