The site-specific installation spanning two different environments build on the artist’s “preoccupations with deconstructing masculine affect” with two sculptural works on pedestals: one composed of found objects, thrift and hardware store finds composed of cheap Eau de Cologne bottles juxtaposed with its English BRUT variant, not available in Germany.
The second pedestal will present “a man, crudely bound and lamely hanging on to a trophy as phallic prosthesis”. Together these works will explore institutional forms of artistic display and masculinity through a 3D scanning process that “seems to alternate between being swallowed by and breaking beyond the confines of the screen environment.”
