Eric-Paul Riege and Prospect New Orleans

For Prospect.5, Eric-Paul Riege will show a 20×20’ installation of weavings, regalia, oversized beads, and a new body of sculpture he has developed for this presentation. The entire installation hangs from the ceiling, hovering just above the ground. The sculptures reference the bodies of sheep – the source of his primary materials – bringing together his familial history as well as his interest in stuffed animals as a source of comfort and security. The sheep sculptures will be draped in ceremonial regalia, which Riege will wear during his closing weekend durational performance.
