COMPLETE

2002 Bicycle parts, stools and paint 68 x 80 x 16 in   (172,7 x 203,2 x 40,6cm) Complete is a sculpture in honnor of renowned French artist Marcel Duchamp, whose work is associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. Duchamp is considered on of the most important artists of the twentieth century and has always been an important influence for Sebastian Errazuriz. Complete is both an homage and a mischievous job at Duchamp’s famous readymade sculpture, named « Bicycle Wheel », which depicts a single wheel on top of a stool. Errazuriz, in his competitive nature, couldn't resist sacrilegiously indicating that his idol’s work might not have been« complete », and that his own completed version is better.
