Slavs and Tatars
Hammer and Nipple

2016, UV print, PVC, steel, 200 x 70 cm, ed. 3 + 1 AP

The cycle Pickle Politics looks to the practices and symbolism of fermentation, constructing a political argument using notions of the rotten, the spoiled, and the soured. And whether in North America, Europe, the Middle East or Asia, we’re increasingly sour on power. Hammer and Nipple takes aim squarely at the maternal and paternal role governments claim to embody. The text reads roughly: “Soured rule, no mother's best / Curd milk oozing from its breast”.
