Adrián Villar Rojas My Family Dead Installation

Beached Whale Sculpture In Argentinean Forest

This beached whale sculpture by Argentinian Artist Adrián Villar Rojas is quite incredible. He creates enormous sculptural works, installations, that look like they’ve arrived out of a dream, a nightmare or even outer space.

This piece, called ‘My Family Dead’, was made in 2009 in a forest outside Ushuaia, Argentina. The whale seems pockmarked with tree stumps making you wonder whether it has been there for eons or simply fallen from the sky. An alien creature, who knows. It’s really quite a magical sculpture and if you want to see more check out the work he did at the 54th Venice Biennale.
