This sculpture is a humorous comment upon my sexual liberation, which took place whilst at art school in the USA. Beyond this too, it has a multi- layered meaning. Lampooning the male ego, this piece uses the most ubiquitous and powerful of symbols, the American flag, to make its point.
The star spangled banner, as depicted hundreds of times by hundreds of artists, is an icon. This sculpture comments on art-making and the artist. Made up of 335 casts of the tip of my penis, it deliberately sets out to challenge, but is clearly being whimsical at the same time. What am I saying and to whom? On one level it reflects The Great Wall of Vagina, on another level, my sexual experiences but moreover, it could be seen as commenting on the USA itself. In the end though, you can make your own mind up about what I’m saying.
