Shogun door Philip King, 1980-81 / 2007
Uit de YSP-info: The original work (1981) was inspired by a round steel ball, which the artist had found by the side of a road. “I bent the steel around it and started doing this and that. I more or less finished the sculpture but I knew there was something wrong.. Eventually it occurred to me that I had to get rid of the steel ball, and it suddenly clicked. It was a hard thing to do, because the ball was the inspiration that got me going and I ended up throwing out the found object.
