Royal burguer IV resting on the cast 32 Figure A of the West Pediment of the Parthenon. Royal Academy of Arts, Cast corridor, London.

Royal burguer IV results from an imprint technique that is similar to the traditional “frottage” on paper. In this case, the imprinted shape was formed after carefully pressing a ball of clay against the Cast 32 Figure A of the West Pediment of the Parthenon of the  RA Schools Corridor (Royal Academy of Arts).

 


Royal Burguer IV belongs to a broader project titled Sometimes you´ve gotta break the rules: a series of works revolving around the perception of the object of art, the inherent structures that sustain the world of art and market, as well as the wage inequalities that relevant art institutions cannot escape.

The title Sometimes you´ve gotta break the rules ironically comes from a 1980s popular slogan from a well-known burger chain.

All ceramic works are protected and shipped in sturdy cardboard boxes.  They are also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued exclusively by Tania Blanco.
