Ruins of Daedalus’ Labyrinth

Ruins of Daedalus’ Labyrinth

Ruins of Daedalus' Labyrinth, a newly commissioned installation by multidisciplinary artist Nuttaphol Ma, opens in the Armory Center for the Arts’ Mezzanine Gallery on Saturday, January 22 from 7-9pm.

Thai-born, Los Angeles-based artist Nuttaphol Ma combines elements of Greek myth, Western operatic form, and European weaving to create a maze-like installation based on a story of migration and survival in his installation Ruins of Daedalus' Labyrinth. Through a translation of the phrase “heroic couplet” – a structural form in English poetry commonly used for epic works – the artist uses Chinese meanings to deconstruct the relationship between eastern and western narratives.
