1992 – Last Laps

Last Laps

Electricity material and electric light

I installed this work three times, one in the studio, one in an art fair and one in a show. The result resembles traditional craftwork and, as craftwork, it is extremely labour intensive to make. I was proud when it was sold to the Reina Sofia collection, because the only artwork delivered was electric cable, pins and a bulb. The museum presented the work as part of next year's 'recent acquisitions' show, and I heard that the technicians who installed it cursed me a few times.
