Danh Vo's "We the people (detail)," 2011, a replica of the Statue of Liberty's cladding can now be seen at the arrivals hall at Porto Airport in Portugal. The purpose of this work was not to build a new statue but, in a gesture of appropriation, to reconstruct its individual elements and to scatter them across different collections throughout the world.
