The Self-Deprecator, maquette of a 16 foot tall problem, Griz E Strüss, 2016
This is a scary contraption, isn't it? When I put it up, the gallery is going to demand that I resolve some of the more looming liabilities of it. I'll tell them that covert manipulation tactics are kind of not safe to be around, and that's the point in the sculpture. Then, they'll say, "Yeah, but we don't want to die." And I'll tell them that really their life is in their hands and they should read the concise book 30 Covert Manipulation Tactics by Adelyn Birch as a way to empower themselves against me.
