Painted steel, rust, brass
33 x 44 x 21 cm
The sculpture is made from the open work lacquered metal introduced to 1950s design objects by Mathieu Matégot. Its shape combines references to everyday objects such as bird feeders or mail boxes with an anthropomorphic presence, reinforced by the title's evocation of the sculpture's tears. Martin Boyce has developed his own pictorial language based on a reading of the formal and conceptual histories of design, architecture and urban planning.
