“Loving care and obliteration and / or subject, object, objectification figurines of boys and girls, little ones, figurines, knickknacks for mothers and fathers loving care, a sliding slippery political objective for objectivity. Objectification as subject. Little girls and boys, object of desire and pleasure to defer and to complete family and patriarchical political propaganda. The small Hummel, a German figurine, a shelf collectible, a figurine of innocence, Alpine Aryan washed and scrubbed hygienic purity holding a straw handmade basket. An image of hygienic joy, frolicking around the pipe pole” – Substance Substitute by Paul McCarthy
