No Mates Worry – 1992

Mixed media sculpture

Mixed media sculpture. H111 x 44 x 37cm

Broad commentary on what I term Economic Nationalism and the  urge to self destruct – “Buy Australian Made” products. Here we have a user-friendly product that assists with personal destruction – effectively an anti-product for the alienated. In our insatiable capitalist greed we scramble to acquire more comestible products to improve our lives, but we are thereby sowing the seeds of our own demise. Simply place left arm in slot provided and saw it off…with your  right.  The Australian Made bag is conveniently placed to receive the lopped-off limb.
