Tongue

This is "a large tongue made of polyester. In terms of shape, it is a faithful copy, in colour, of someone's tongue; we do not experience its size as traumatic and yet this object reveals to us again something unknown in the known. The cause of an organ which occupies an impossible space between inside and outside, it is an inner organ/muscle, mostly invisible, but may become visible by being intentionally stuck out, mainly on account of two impulses, the impulse to communicate (ridicule, defy, etc.) and the sexual impulse. Thus biomorphology is here solely in the field of intersubjective relations, the sculpture itself is a sign of difference between the natural and a fabricated copy/metamorphosis..."
