Description

Internationally acclaimed late sculptor Duane Hanson created an installation for his work "Vendor with walkman" at the Departure Level of Terminal 3. Featuring a seated 30+ year old male wearing a red T-shirt, blue pants, baseball cap and listening to a walkman radio/cassette during a break. The installation accessories give additional clues to the narrative of the artwork: toy airplane, various signs and announcement for the shop, janitorial supplies… Hanson again presented a slice of Americana in the most unexpected locale.

 

Artist Description

"Vendor with walkman should be seen as a work of contemporary sculpture. The artist has tried to create a normal situation in the airport environment. The vendor seated in a folding chair is listening to a walkman in a shop that is about to open for business."
