Trophy Skin by Ian Burns

Artwork Description


Original title of the artwork: Trophy Skin

Ian Burns’ works reimagine the consumer technologies that now define many human activities. In Circle (2016), two inflated latex gloves levitate around a ring of fans programmed to turn on and off in sequence. For Burns, who lives in New York City, the gloves represent a ‘carnivalesque’ stand-in for human beings; and are used in response to both the Australian news about the treatment of asylum seekers, and police violence against African Americans in the USA.
