In 1917, Duchamp changed the original significance of a urinal, re-contextualizing it as a work of art, with the aim to shift the focus from art as mere physical crafting to a deeper intellectual interpretation.
Gender is often something I concern myself with when it comes to my art.
In this piece, I display myself as a urinal, placed in the middle of an art exhibition. The audience (of any gender) will be given the freedom to “use” me, should they feel the need, while interacting with other works.
