Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK006156).
A sculpture of a human figure, sitting on a stretcher, is partly covered with a crust of manure, mud and blood. His face has a joyful expression which gets disturbed by his metal eye. At the moment that we might assume that this figure is dead, he springs to life: we see his bright red penis (as if just circumcised; Es geht um die Wurst! - literally: it’s about the sausage!, or still: it’s about the essence!) and he shows us a photo of a mummified dog. This artwork is part of the installation that Durham made especially for Documenta IX.Add to your list
