“I love this piece. It is an inside-out creature. It does not pose a serious problem. You won’t hesitate to be amused by it and to enjoy not solving the puzzle of what it is. You will be happy with the familiarity, as well as challenged by the twisted intestine of this soft, mechanical, empty lump. In a simple phrase, it is unpretentiously current… located somewhere between us and the smart and bloodless art world around us.”
