About the artwork
Rosemarie Trockel’s “Entenanhänger” from 1993 consists of a necklace with a pendant, depicting a Donald Duck figurine. The Donald Duck is being “strangled” by the attached necklace and has an erection. All male creatures have this reaction when hung by the neck. There are also 2 offset printed postcards of a duck, one with silkscreened feathers and the other plucked. The silkscreened feathers are printed using a wet and view ink, disappearing when moistened and reappearing when dry. Additionally, there is an offset-printed stamp with the image of duck. All components come in a custom made embossed box.
