    About The Work

    To accompany her Chisenhale Gallery exhibition in 2012, Amalia Pica produced this unique limited edition, which includes a photograph that serves as a visual instruction guide for how to assemble the accompanying elements. The edition is based on a series of works that take as their starting point the term "catachresis," defined as the misapplication of a word used to designate an element that has no name. This sculpture is an assemblage of objects named with this type of metaphor: elbow of the pipe, eye of the potato, eye of the needle.
