silicone rubber, 2003

A work is concerned with body cult and is a sort of antipod to the Barbie dolls. It deals with boys' education through a toy industry.

Rubber, as a characteristic material of the latter, emphasises a tactile dimension. A process leading from an industrial product to a gallery-wise, aesthetical form is the issue at hand. A gesture of closed fist and showing off biceps is directly transposed and augmented from a small action-toy figure. Logo imprint on the arm tells the work has been made at the Faculty of Fine Arts. The work plays around with relations' line multiplication-original-artistic-unique.
