Ryan Mathern and Cecilia Marrero - Immolation
The piece was motivated by the recent acts of self-immolations by Tibetan Monks who burned themselves alive to protest against their oppression by Communist China. The artist is a veteran of Burning Man and says he is bringing the esthetic that he learned there to Atlanta. He will be lighting the piece on fire at the end of its exhibition.
It is located on the Eastside Trail next to Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park.
