IKONS
This performative sculpture with sculptural drawing is dedicated to the Polish LGBT activists Joanna Gzyra-Iskandar, Anna Prus and Elzbieta Podlesna. They have depicted the icon Black Madonna of Czestochowa on posters with a rainbow colored with a rainbow-colored halo, thus fighting for equality to fight for equal rights. They were accused of for violating religious feelings and were acquitted.
When you sit on this sculpture, you become part of the sculptural drawing.
Material: oak, walnut, photography, partially gilded.

This stool sculpture is inspired by a stool that stood in the parental home - the so-called "African Room" - of James Tiptree Jr. aka Alice B. Sheldon. On the surface is inscribed a quotation from Sheldon's biographer, Julie Phillips, which reads: "Around this time, for reasons unknown, she also underwent removal of the uterus."
