The grey barrier cord wrapped around this structure was taken from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, revealing a self-conscious interest in the constraining circumstances of museum display. The sculpture incorporates a range of objects, including a running shoe and a series of painted boxes. It reflects the Surrealist interest in seizing upon the chance encounter of seemingly unrelated objects, while also revealing the artist’s interest in display conventions in consumer culture.
