Jeffrey Gibson’s Punching Bags

Half Choctaw and half Cherokee, Jeffrey Gibson was raised in the US, Germany and South Korea. Pulling inspiration from powwow dancers of Native American, he combines traditional and modern elements by covering Everlast punching bags with glass beads, steel cones, fabric and nylon bangs. Embodying the Native Americans’ strength, he conveys messages through his beaded punching bags, supposed to represent rage’s channeling. Win by TKO.
