    About The Work

    Revolution Pipe Bomb is a collaborative limited edition by artists Lisa Kirk and Jelena Behrend, produced exclusively by Participant Inc. Fashioned in sterling silver, 14k gold, or platinum, Revolution Pipe Bomb is a hand crafted precious metal decanter designed for this special edition of the fragrance, Revolution. Conceived as the end result of several years of research and related works by Kirk that address the marketing of transgressive practices, Revolution Pipe Bomb is a luxury fragrance, produced in collaboration with Symrise Perfumers. Through research gathered from interviews with anonymous journalists, activists, and political radicals, Kirk developed the Revolution fragrance based on their memories of the smell of revolution. The final solution contains the odor of smoke, gasoline, tear gas, burnt rubber, and decaying flesh.

    For this special limited edition, Kirk joined with artist and jeweler, Jelena Behrend to imagine a precious metal pipe bomb to contain a vile of this faintly aggressive fragrance. Elevating a makeshift device to a highly valued commodity, this bold and meticulously sculpted object, removed from the register of everyday violence, is held in reserve for the smell of Revolution
