Artist Sebastian Errazuriz Makes Classical Sculptures Of Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, And Jeff Bezos

Elon Musk, Exile and Escape.

Artist, Designer and Activist Sebastian Errazuriz has received international acclaim for his original and provocative works on a variety of areas and disciplines. Tackling everything from political artworks to giant public art projects, experimental furniture to product design and women’s shoes to motorcycles. His work is always surprising and compelling, inviting the viewer to look again at realities that were often hidden in front of their own eyes.

Jeff Bezos’s steed rears up on two legs. But he is calm, showcasing an awkward smile, seemingly unaware of his own overwhelming show of force. Elon Musk hunches over under the weight of his angel wings, with a flamethrower at the ready on his hip. Sergey Brin looks off into the distance, a latter-day Julius Caesar wearing Google Glass. Steve Jobs sits much like The Thinker, his hand poking at an iPhone rather than resting under his chin.

This is The Beginning of the End, the U.S premiere of Sebastian Errazuriz’s ironic sculptures of Silicon Valley’s finest. The show of this South American artist opens at New York’s Elizabeth Collective May 1 and runs through May 24.

Errazuriz’s works are meant to mock. He has very purposefully chosen to depict what he has dubbed the “new mythologies” by capturing tech leaders–and also Donald Trump–looking rarely better than awkward when rendered in the classical look of hand-carved marble. Mark Zuckerberg stares with a deadpan ignorance of any emotion at all in the sculpture, “The New Opium.” Whistleblower Edward Snowden closes his eyes on his deathbed, with a Christ-like gesture of defeat in “The Collapse of the Resistance.” Larry Page looks like Socrates admiring the views of a strip mall in “The Great Oracle.”
