[ COCK BOX ]

[ MAHA BYN ] 2010, pine, hardboard, mdf, gloss paint, 350 x 190 cm. 

Maha Byn tells the story of regeneration, from one sex to the other. In the Freemasons to become a Master mason the apprentice needs to speak the name of God; “Maha Byn”, the death of the apprentice gives birth to a Master mason. 
 

I made a mock-up of the first to play around with the skeleton of the structure before construction.













The viewer enters the gallery to find this hyper gloss finish alien construction, black on it's outer skin and white on its inner, with a Irn-Bru tartan kilt curtain covering its middle. You are met with an encapsulating entrance, there is a kilt which you need to unbuckle, on hands and knees, you crawl into the tight space to find black amercing you. A white light is seen in the distance , your eyes focus and adjusted to the light. To realize insulating the cavern is fabric phallus's hanging, pointing and prodding your space, mean while a film projected from inside the roof (of the top JIMMY) illustrates the story of rebirth. As the participant crawls towards the light of the film projector they suddenly are met with an alternate route and fall out from the erection; dazed, lack of strength in their legs and reborn.
