trophy, after picasso, 2010

bicycle seat, porcelain, wood, metal, custom mechanics

60 x 57 x 48 cm

Two symbolic (male and female) icons of modernist art are represented in this kinetic sculpture. The bicycle seat referencing the bull's head is quoting the sculpture Bull's Head (Tete de Toro) by Pablo Picasso, 1943. The porcelain flower that grows out of the center of the seat is an homage to Georgia O’Keefe. It's placement in the "sweet spot" is a marriage of a sexual signifier and a feminist declaration.
