Lot Essay

‘In a single work Trockel is likely to offer a multifocal view – conflating conceptual problems and material properties, notions of male and female, female and feminist, natural and constructed worlds, sciences and arts, everyday objects and emblematic art-historical references – as she also turns a critical eye to her own work while setting out constellations of personal cosmology.’ – Joan Simon
