WHAT HAPPENED AT THE ICA?

These two giraffes arrived at ICA in pieces, the combined result of poor packing and uncertain handling and shipping.   Assistant Objects Conservator Claire Curran surface cleaned the pieces and repaired breaks.  Necessary fills were leveled, smoothed, and inpainted.  The sculpture was mounted on a rectangular base, weighted with lead sheets hidden in a hollow.  Now the giraffes stand proudly together as intended.
