Bernardi Roig’s Night Lights

There’s one good thing about the days getting shorter: there’s more time to enjoy Bernardi Roig’s sculptures in all of their illuminated glory. Beautiful as they are during the day, Intersections artist Roig‘s works comprised of white plaster figures and fluorescent lights are especially captivating at night. Here’s a look at the works after the sun has gone down.

The Man Dangling From Our Building

Installation of several works by Bernardi Roig is in progress as we near the opening date of his Intersections project at the Phillips, NO/Escape. Three of the works will be outside of the museum’s walls, including Acteon (2005), which will hang in the alleyway between the original Phillips house and the Goh Annex, a 1960s addition.
