Commissioned specifically for Campbell Art Park outside Oklahoma Contemporary, Chakaia Booker’s Shaved Portions stands sentinel atop Automobile Alley. The enormous sculpture showcases Booker’s ability to radically transform her signature material — salvaged rubber tires — into an incredible array of biomorphic sculptures.
Visitors can walk through the massive, cathedral-like structure and appreciate the power of its texture, structure and message: The sculpture is repurposed from cast-off industrial scraps that would otherwise have remained symbols of urban blight or measures of wanton waste.
