Ubu King, 2011
Ubu Crown, 2011
Wood, glazed porcelain with gold and palladium, crystal, glass, mink fur
It’s without hierarchy, in a sort of “bric-a-brac” of heterogeneous elements that I mix a twist from a chair to porcelain enameled in gold and crystal from an old chandelier.As his crown, my king has contradictions. The preciousness or not of the materials is like the appearance glorious or not of this man of power.He would like to be respectable but he is vulgar. His insatiable desire of ascension is a reflection of the height of his crown, which makes it even more funny and ridiculous.
