Charles Ray
Ink Line (1987)
Ink, electric motor, pump, plastic

"Ink Line, 1987, is a continuous stream of black ink traveling from a dime-size opening in the ceiling into a similar hole in the floor.
At first glance, the narrow stream appears static, but when carefully observed, the viewer is able to detect subtle fluctuations in the ink's flow.
Ink Line relates to the artist's iconic Ink Box from the previous year, in which a steel cube is precipitously filled to the brim with black ink. "

White Tiger (Kenny), Selective Inbreeding
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge and Foundation
Eureka Springs, Arkansas

In the United States, all living white tigers are the result of selective inbreeding to artificially create the genetic conditions that lead to white fur, ice-blue eyes and a pink nose.
Kenny was born to a breeder in Bentonville, Arkansas on February 3, 1999.
As a result of inbreeding, Kenny is mentally retarded and has significant physical limitations.
Due to his deep-set nose, he has difficulty breathing and closing his jaw, his teeth are severely malformed and he limps from abnormal bone structure in his forearms.
The three other tigers in Kenny’s litter are not considered to be quality white tigers as they are yellow coated, cross-eyed, and knock-kneed.

Afasia 2 (2008)
Steel and nitrogen compressed at 250 bar

"Three steel objects relate the development of a single idea over several years. The first version, a cylindrical form almost two meters in length produced in 2005, contained nitrogen compressed at 220 bar.
The prototype of the group, it was subsequently destroyed by the artist. The second and third versions*, more spherical in shape and produced in 2007 and 2008 respectively, hold within them an even higher level of potential energy and weigh upwards of 600 kilograms (21,000 pounds) each.

They were designed by the artist together with Pietro Florential, a northern Italian company who also produced them, and constructed through the fusion of two semi-spherical caps normally used to seal the end of a piping infrastructure network.
Welded together over the course of two intense days, the objects were then subjected to static test in order to measure their capability to withstand extreme fluctuations of temperature and pressure.
Both objects were subsequently approved for public exhibition by officials from Burreau Veritas and the European Community."
(text from Arcangelo Sassolino JRP|Ringier, 2008)

*Afasia 2 is the third and final piece. The former two were both untitled.
