Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL 2018
The Real Deal: Soft Touch & A Gentle Push, 2018
12 x 7 x 4 feet & 10 x 6 x 5 feet
Nicholas Missel’s The Real Deal: Soft Touch & A Gentle Push is a pair of enormous limp silicone machines, the Park’s compact loader and a decommissioned bulldozer, that will lie sprawled across Socrates’ lawn. Cast from working pieces of equipment involved in construction with traces of dirt, rust and debris, the sculptures can be understood as a meditation on global patterns of industrial production, material circulation and consumption, and the sustainability of existence on Earth.
