Sculptor and reclining model – Billedhugger og liggende model

Watch the animation Sculptor and reclining model

Sculptor and reclining model, is based on the etching "Le repos du Sculpteur devant le Petit Torse", 1933 by Pablo Picasso. The etching is obviously an art piece from a patriarchal culture. With the active male sculptor and a passive female model. In the animation the roles are switch so the active sculptor is female and the passive model is male. It becomes a play with expectations of roles and genders.
