Drypoint on Masa paper / walnut shell & walnut wood base
3” x 1.25” x 1.25”
András Böröcz, an artist born in 1956, reflects on the ironies of Hungarian cultural-political reality in his sculptures, prints & performance art.
This tiny printed paper-scroll is rolled up inside a walnut shell & must pull it out of the shell in order to ‘read' it. The absurdist nutshell-related imagery is typical of Böröcz’s humor & style, where he focuses on material objects and transforms them into social commentary, both in his drawings, sculptures & performance art.
