Name/Title

Gander Imbalance

About this object

A set of birds on a see-saw; a gander of geese at the lower end, a single rooster at the other. The see-saw sits on a low and flat horizon line in an empty and flat (desert) landscape with moon and stars in the sky. The image is a response to feminist discourse and provocatively poses the question as to how many gander are equal to a rooster.
