The intent of this piece is to stimulate conversation about gender roles and the functionality of each gender’s “craft”. By creating the structure of the hoops through more stereotypically masculine methods like welding and spray painting, “man’s” craft is contrasted with the intricate, macramé knots and weaving constructed through methods of a “woman’s” craft.

Michael Cimino's Horse
Michael Cimino's Horse

In his grossly over-budget film, Heaven’s Gate, Micael Cimino killed five horses for the sake of the footage. One of the most controversial deaths was due to dynamite. Because of this film, all animals in show business are now protected and assured humane conditions. This piece is the mid-explosion wreckage of that horse. The piece is displayed suspended, as if paused partway through the event.
