It’s all going south from now on

2014
Polished and broken glass (110 x 7 cm)

It’s all going south from now on, consists of a shattered glass baseball bat presented as testimony of a past event. The shattered glass is left lying, as if almost forgotten. This piece works as an oxymoron, the material used to mould the bat being in contradiction with the object’s real function. Another improbable oddity is the place of fracture: It occurs at the thick end of the bat. The sculpture’s incongruity is named It’s all going south from now on, a metaphor for a breakdown or a reversal of fortune
