Found object on a plinth

30 x 50 x 40 cms


An object that resembles a smoking pipe found and displayed by the artist in reference to Magritte & Duchamp.

This readymade was found by the artist; a u-bend from a drain, a transition point between private and public waste disposal. The seal to prevent contamination of smells and germs between the individual and civic pace, the shape is also reminiscent of a toilet bowl or the philosopher’s tobacco pipe. The male accessory of traditional patriarchal values displayed as a decrepit old tube.
