Gagosian is pleased to present three large papier-mâché sculptures by Franz West, from the Sisyphos series (2002). The Sisyphos sculptures are amorphous masses of papier-mâché, Styrofoam, and cardboard, expressively painted with lacquer and acrylic. They are named after the mythical first king of Ephyra, who deceived and plotted against others in order to advance his own power and prestige. Like archeological specimens, the sculptures are mottled, earthy fragments, coagulating beneath layers of viscous paint.
