    Wood

    Dimensions variable

    Stations presents an installation of four wooden staircases, each representing one of the four elements: air, earth, fire, and water. Nguyen’s work, influenced by the German Romantic painter, Caspar David Friedrich, addresses the staircase as a man-made symbol of the mountain, representing the possibility of transcendence and self-development and, as viewed in the context of the cityscape across the river, as a metaphor for contemporary urban culture.
