From 2011 to 2013, Vietnamese artist Danh Vő (born 1975) built a full-scale replica of the Statue of Liberty in 267 pieces, which was installed in New York (among other locations) to much acclaim. Here, Vő places the installation and other works alongside photos by Peter Hujar in an eloquent dialogue on sexuality and identity.

In Relics, Andrew Berardini explores the work of Danh Vő (born 1975) to show how art gives utterance to history’s shadows upon our lives. Inspired by an exhibition in Mexico City, Berardini’s deeply personal investigation of Vő’s work discusses a sexy Statue of Liberty, John Keats’ tombstone and the holy trinity in a license plate.
