Duck Production

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Bath ducks made in the sculpturally classical material of concrete were extracted from a mould of a mass produced kitsch 12″ plastic bath duck.  This subverts the ducks’ original use as a bath toy and plays with the idea of classical garden sculptures placed in “locus amoenus”, a pleasant environment.  The ducks are placed in one of the landscaped courtyards outside the Phoenix art studios of York St John.
