Mircea Cantor, Epic Fountain, 2012
(24 k gold plated safety pins 314 cm high x 21 cm large)
Epic Fountain, a totemic column of safety pins fastened to resemble the double helix of human DNA, refers to the building blocks of all living existence. For Cantor, the molecular structure represents aspiration. The fountain referred to in the title is not a traditional one of water, but of life itself; the molecule being the source of all living organisms. Hung from ceiling to floor, Epic Fountain forms an impressive but delicate tower – an epic, yet fragile, monument to existence.
