Best known for his architectural manipulations, Gregor Schneider subverts reality to expose an unease with the ordinary. Transforming houses into doppelganger replicas of themselves and transporting entire rooms and buildings from site to site, Schneider revamps domestic interiors, creating a creepy sense of the uncanny in their mundane detail, turning everyday experience into horror. Man Cock encapsulates this sense of banal terror. His figure, half stuffed into a bin liner, lays discarded in the gallery as a gruesome discovery: a murdered corpse or auto-erotic asphixiant. The sculpture is chilling in its prosaicness, its gruesome subject reduced to mere objecthood The most disturbing aspect of Man Cock is the psychological implications: head shrouded in black plastic and trousers bulging, Schneider alludes to an unconscious realm where perversion and death is the ultimate seduction.
