About the artwork

Wearing Propaganda revisits a piece made in 1996 which is in the collection of Kunsthalle Hamburg. The image depicts the artist holding two dolls standing over an oven, relating to the artist's motif of stoves. The work is a good example of her interest in exploring ideas of gender and domestic space. The artist described the work as showing her being torn between human and animal. It is taken from a series of three, and this edition has an added unique element of the Lacoste sticker. The previous edition was included in the artist's solo exhibition at the New Museum, New York and Serpentine Gallery, London.
