FISCHLI & WEISS - The Sausage Photographs -1993

Details

I really love the above image for its humorous qualities, creating a simple food such a sausages in a model one gives each one a personality and allows the viewer to connect with them. A sausage is a food that has sexual connotations so I like how this work subtly nods to that. turning food into a body humanizes them and shows that many things can be created as a body. it also reminds us of the truth of where a sausage comes from, that it did in fact come from a living body who probably had a personality too. THE SAD EXPRESSION OF THE SAUSAGES ADDS TO THIS, PERHAPS ALLUDING TO THE SAD LIVES OF THE PIGS WHO ARE GOING TO BE EATEN. THE WORK FROM THE COLLECTION 'AT THE CARPET SHOP' , ALTHOUGH CREATED A WHILE BEFORE THE SAUSAGES SEEMS TO FIT WITH THEM AND TELL A STORY. IN 'AT THE CARPET SHOP' MEAT IS PRESENTED IN A VERY LIFELESS WAY AS IT IS SIMPLY SHOWN AS MEAT WHEREAS LATER IN THE WORK THE MEAT IS SHOWN TO HAVE A PERSONALITY, PERHAPS SUGGESTING A CHANGING VIEW FROM THE ARTISTS TOWARDS MEAT AND THE EXPLOITATION OF ANIMAL BODIES...

MAURIZIO CATTELAN - Not afraid of love - 2002

Details

the word obscure is so relevant as it concerns so many things, deliberate obstructions but also sometimes more interestingly accidental obstructions. the image by maurizio cattelan is effective as it obscures the elephant only leaving the essential parts of it on view such as the feet and trunk, these are crucial to identifying the elephant. I as it hides the elephant without taking away from what it is.

The simple spin on a classic shoe is genius, the boot is transformed by a simple change in design. It resembles the toe of a camel giving the boots animal  qualities, combining aspects of human design with natural animal forms creates a more exciting outcome that exceeds that normal boot.
