The sculpture You Can Laugh is 7ft human fetus covered with small shiny tiles and a drain hole installed in its belly. Slightly mutated, the clean and sanitary surface of the fetus tiled skin plays on society's absurd preoccupation with contamination. During the exhibition the artist will periodically and ritualistically polish the surface of the object.
