Haas Brothers Lamp, Metal Mutant Vehicle Design by Henry Chang Lead Burning Man Charity SaleSep 30, 2021 10:00 EDT - Oct 08, 2021 11:00 EDT
Sculptures by the Haas Brothers are well-known for their artistic themes and use of different materials. The artists create functional pieces that blur the line between design and art. The upcoming Burning Man charity auction, offered by Sotheby’s, presents Handy Warhol by the Haas Brothers. The available glazed ceramic solar-powered LED sculpture also functions as a lamp. It showcases a smooth finish and aesthetic handiwork. Also featured is a canvas apron with glass beads titled Ethiopia by Big Chief Demond Melancon. It is a prominent example of New Orleans’ Black Masking Culture. The process involves sewing glass beads on canvas using needles and thread.
Another highlight is a custom vehicle build by Henry Chang. The offering will provide the winner access to the designer’s workshop, where the metal mutant vehicle manufacturing will take place for Burning Man 2023. The winning bidder will also be able to offer inputs during the design process. Purse for Strong Women by Russian sculptor Alexandra Weld Queen reflects a combination of spiritual space and materiality. Weld Queen’s interactive sculpture provides an artistic touch to everyday objects. Also offered is an ECCO leather dress by Iris van Herpen, artwork by Stephen Paul Day, and jewelry by Yasmine Dabbous. This charitable auction supports the participating artists and the work of Burning Man Project. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Sotheby’s.
