Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art: Feminist Art Base: Melanie Manchot

Security

Melanie Manchot. Security, 2005.

Description:
"The installation is effective because of the contradictions it invokes: strength and vulnerability, humor and poignancy, pride and shame. In its presentation of iconic tough guys, 'Security' deftly dismantles the pretense of power--few things undermine a man's authority like the image of him wearing nothing but his socks." --Emily Talbot, "Time Out New York," March 8-14, 2007
