Et tu, Duchamp?

This bronze sculpture by Indian artist Subodh Gupta was placed last week on Kunsthalle wien public space karlsplatz where it will remain until October 31, 2010. Gupta, who calls himself "idol thief", quotes in his works icons of European art, positioning them in new contexts. For the sculpture "Et tu, Duchamp?" he has used the French artist Marcel Duchamp´s work "L.H.O.O.Q." (1919) which shows Mona Lisa disfigured by a moustache and a goatee, as a model.

    Naja, wenn einem sonst nichts mehr einfällt.
