Postcards collected from The Serpentine Gallery:

Selected works:

Top: Robert Gober, Untitled candle, 1991
Middle: Maret Oppenheim, Objekt, 1936
Bottom: Roman Signer, Kissen mit Benzin und Kerze, 1983

Each of these postcard where chosen because they depict some kind of fetishised object or surface. They each hold metaophors and become symbols for other ideas. The cup of tea is a classic adaptation of the idea of a surface becomming a fetish.The top one is slightly too falic for me , but i am still really keen of Gober's work. The smaller sculptures are something i like continue to try and understand as i think they work od loads of different layers.
