Sterling Silver Life Rafts

Tumescence 1996

 

 

 

 

 

After posting the last drawing, I remembered these sterling silver castings of life rafts (Tumescence 1996) that formed part of my 1996 Mori Gallery exhibition, Solicitude. I am surprised at the prescience here, given that many pundits are calling for a return to “honest” money solutions, the silver/life raft analogy thus seems quite apt…another part of this installation was Das Narrenschiff (The Ship of Fools), but that’s another story…I’ll post some more images soon…
