Installation info: To be shown on a free standing plinth, without ridge on top, unlike in photo. Previously museum wax has been used to balance sculpture upright. If this is to be repeated take care to avoid applying this near the signature underneath as the wax will smudge it. 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.
