‘That obscure object of desire – Rose Sélavy´s funeral’ is the central piece of a larger trilogy. The artwork is a tribute to Marcel Duchamp, who is here depicted as the smallest figure with floating head, being decapitated. That obscure object of desire is the title of a Buñuel film. The cage with some little marble cubes is a Duchamp´s ready made.
The artwork shows the struggle of artist Salvador Carabante’s in his relationship to Duchamp. As the title tells us, in this work he ‘kills’ the alter-ego of Duchamp, Rose Sélavy.
“I think Duchamp was the best and at the same time the worst that could happen in modern art. I have a love-hate relationship with him.”Available as Fineart Dibond®, Framed by Nielsen®, Forex®, Framed Linen and Classic Poster.
