Gale Antokal / Place 3 / 2004 / pastel ash on paper / 38 x 47 inches unframed, 42.25 x 51.5 framed

In her 2004 exhibition, We are so Lightly Here, Gale Antokal delivered a vision of displacement with images of milk pouring down a flight of stairs, groups of people walking with baggage in hand, monumental mountains shrouded in snow, sledders disappearing down a hill, billowing smoke, footprints in snow, a lone skater gliding across a field of ice, and birds in chaotic flight. Place 3 is held in a private collection.
