The Lady
2010
PVC filled with sand
25 x 60 x 180 cm
The sagging body of his life-size Lady (2010) is made out of PVC filled with sand, but its black shiny surface could suggest something like tar or mercury, shifting shapes according to gravity. Displayed in various positions – on the floor, recumbent on stairs – “‘it’ is forced to take the shape of the given surface, meekly adapting to the circumstances.” Another slightly sinister, hybrid silhouette, like the piled up folds of Bedtime Story, it is an object that can be read on several narrative levels at once, despite its seeming initial simplicity.
