Celebrate Black Artists for Black History Month
A.C.Q. I (2016-2017) takes a special position within Nengudi’s oeuvre. In this mixed-media installation, composed of refrigerator and air conditioner parts, fan, pantyhose, and sand, Nengudi juxtaposes hard, rigid, industrial materials with the soft elastic properties of stretched nylon. The work itself is performative, a foundational element in Nengudi’s practice, as the moving fan causes the soft elements to move. A.C.Q. I not only becomes activated as an object but also activates the space in which it is installed. In this particular piece, Nengudi moves from the elasticity of the body to the malleability of the mind, offering abstracted renderings of the human psyche as it navigates the obstacles of various stages of life, from parenthood, to career, relationships, and elder care.
Senga Nengudi, A.C.Q. I, 2016-2017. Mixed media installation. Denver Art Museum: Purchased with funds from the Contemporary Collectors’ Circle with additional support from Vicki and Kent Logan, Catherine Dews Edwards and Philip Edwards, Craig Ponzio, and Ellen and Morris Susman, 2020.566.1-3. © Senga Nengudi.
