Artist Eye, 2009
drawing on canvas eyepatch, bun, aluminum foil
For this multiple Onnen has drawn an eye on both sides of a canvas eyepatch—one side open, one side closed. You can choose which way to wear it depending on your disposition on any given day. It also doubles as a simple animation toy—just wind it up and give it a spin. Comes packaged in a stale German currywurst bun inside an aluminum wrapper.
Serge Onnen is a Dutch artist whose work has been shown in Europe, South America and North America. Residencies: Rijksakademie, Amsterdam; Glassell Program Houston, TX; ISCP program NYC; Cite International des Arts Paris. He is the trumpet player for the improvisational band Oorbeek.
