Untitled (Pair) 1999

On Display Modern One

  • Must See
The two elements of this work are cast from a mortuary slab. One part has a slightly hollowed surface, designed to capture bodily fluids and channel them towards the foot end. The second part is a direct cast of the other. This makes them like male and female partners, as they would fit together if one were turned upside-down and placed on top of the other. Standing side by side like a knight and lady in a medieval tomb, they refer to death and companionship.
