the forms created by the vinyl bags remind me of polyps almost as though these organs that nengudi has created has formed some sort of disease or perhaps a growth.
I don’t get the feeling of connection to the human body or spirituality out of a piece that (though clams to be more natural with mud and sand) looks mostly like it’s made of synthetics.
There is a trend to speak excessively in pop culture today about spirituality-without ever having defined what it is. And this makes applying that quality to an art work even more nebulous. To attribute a particular quality to an object requires that the specific nature of the object be shown to express the abstracted quality; I don't see how this can be done without defining that abstract quality to begin with.
