I wonder what is the significance of the scissors?
I have the same question as Bill.Perhaps something to celebrate "Fashion" ? Or something to do with design we are surrounded with every day without thinking about it?Hope you will find out the answer.Gunn /Stavanger /Norwegen
Wonderful crisp, clean sculpture... Like Gunn and Bill... inquiring minds want to know. (smile)Bises,G
I like this sculpture!
Wahrscheinlich werden damit die herrlichen Buchspyramiden geschnitten?(ein Spass von mir)Wäre interessant zu wissen wozu diese Skulptur für welche Werbung benützt wird?
How interesting! I like the stark, modern lines against the backdrop of that beautiful building.
I get the point! That's a sharp sculpture!
Leif Hagen, you have given me a laugh. A very pointed observation!
First of all, I´m glad that you seem to like the sculpture! I couldn´t find any definite explanation on the internet. Valie Export is a feminist artist and a lot of her works are about provokation. The title of this sculpture is "Doppelgängerin", in an article I read that by doubling the sewing shears the every day item scissors are transformed into a monster and that it´s all about decomposition and social restraints... I can´t really make head or tail of this explanation. Can you?
