The Gift (sculpture)
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Much like Oppenheim's Object, Gift is a conjunction of two alien objects. One represents domesticity and possibly femininity; the other represents carpentry and hence masculinity. The sheer failure of Gift as something practical makes the object a poor gift - ironic naming on Ray's part.
In 1974, Ray made 5,000 replicas of Gift as a limited edition.
