Diana Al Hadid, Synonym, 2017-2018 (part of the exhibition Delirious Matter) Polymer modified gypsum, fiberglass, powerder-coated aluminum, and pigment.
In her first major public art project, Diana Al-Hadid (American, b. Aleppo, Syria 1981) combines aluminum, steel, fiberglass, concrete, polymer modified gypsum, and pigment in four sculptures installed across the Williams campus. Al-Hadid is best known for creating ghostly white sculptures that pivot among architectural ruin, figuration, and abstraction. Delirious Matter conjures architecture that evokes archaeological remains, human figures that seep into cascading form, and expanses that hover between interior and exterior. The sculptures are located accross the Williams College campus, in front of Berkshire Quad, Hopkins Hall, and the Sawyer Library Quad.
