1:1 scale replica of Robert E Lee bust removed from the Bronx Hall of Fame
after the events in Charlottesville in 2017 and the reevaluation of Confederate
monuments. Cast in mycelium. The growth, transformation, expansion of the
fungus is a metaphor for the growth and spread of the “Lost Cause” myth of the Civil War.
