Seven wooden dildos form the starting point of this work, modeled on prototypes based on excavated archaeological relics. Another fictional story is hidden within the text of the corresponding metal placard. A group of well-trained actors surround these “artifacts” in the art museum to begin their performance. “Art” is amplified when its “sexual” characteristics and metaphysical worldviews collide. As groups of people peep at and watch these exaggerated techniques, ingenious structures and witty lines, modernist features of an entirely different sort emerge.
