French artist Christian Boltanski uses a giant crane and a 25 foot mound of clothes to represent and contemplate the randomness of death. The work, “No Man’s Land” is bizarrely similar to the frustrating arcade game in which a player tries to pull a desired stuffed animal from a pile of many using a wobbly joystick. Usually walking away empty handed, somehow this sculpture leaves me with a similar sense of loss and helplessness but on a much more profound level. Every few minutes, in an act to represent the arbitrariness of death, the claw plucks random items of clothing from the mound and then releases them to flutter haphazardly back down. A soundtrack of a thousand heartbeats echos throughout.
