Wooden corpse stolen from The Lot

“What was so unbearable about the wooden corpse? It looked like an oversized carved saint dragged from a church to be surrounded by armed men, and was—for a time—at the center of The Lot on the south side of lower Chapel near the intersection of Church and Orange sts., in New Haven. Installed by Artspace, it was a dominant element of Baptiste Ibar’s work ‘Guided Men’ until someone decided to steal it.”
