Chakaia Booker: Shaved Portions

at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center

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.
