Wild Flowers is a series of sculptures reproducing different parts of the George Washington statue on Wall Street. These isolated body parts (torso, pelvis, hands, fingers, feet) were hollowed out and cast in bronze. The sculptures act as flowerpots, containing plants native to the region where they are exhibited. Wild Flowers shows an "anticipation" of a future where nature would take over and invade the debris of a statue erected to the glory of the "founding father" of the United States. It is thus a continuation of Iván Argote's work showing reappropriations of statues commemorating nations’ “great men.” The artist has developed narratives in which they are stripped of the symbolic power that usually animates them: for example, he staged the removal by the authorities of the statues of Christopher Colon (Paseo, 2022) and Joseph Gallieni (Au revoir, Joseph Gallieni, 2021).
