Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ron Mueck meet

Thai pancakes and banana coleslaw for Millennium Dome Boy

Banana coleslaw
, you can't be serious Rirkrit

"Thai pancakes, is this for me?" after Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ron Mueck

You never realize that installations in the artworld are all around you. The game is now to discover if all it is is just fiction, a perception. I never knew the corrupt meaning, its pretence and open trap. Ron Mueck's sculptures are hyper-realistic, they are finely produced but again cast very large. So, it is a woman giving birth. Why did he not do the entire animal kingdom, or the child being of another species? What about it not having a sense of seeing, hearing or speaking, or giving a birth too? Better yet, covered from head to toe with a birthmark that looked like its motherland's flag.

Rirkrit Tiravanija's chrome ping-pong table tennis is missing a few elements, reflective suits, gloves and shoes for each players, a chrome plated ping-pong ball and accompanying rackets, reflective turf grass build around a covered court of mirrors. Now a tennis game....that blow your fucking mind...too bad ours bit the dust so many years ago.

Remember this scene from Priscilla Queen of the Dessert 1:29
