Bring Home the Bacon (2018)
This piece is a prototype of 'kinsciousness', created during its early stages. A black silk tie fries with bacon in oil, the deliberate and irreversible rendering of an expensive object. 'Bringing home the bacon', a old-timey phrase associated with male breadwinners, also comes to mind. The act of cooking by a man, presumably for his family, subverts that expectation.
