Schoolteacher reads the first lesson
assemblage of found objects
china ducks, old barometer face, bird skeleton, cockatiel eggs
26 X 38 X 7 cm
by Dale Copeland, 2015
It's the arrogance of certainty that gets me.
This is the way that it is. Why? Because I say so.
Here the pompous duck in high stiff collar tells the eggs about the lovely life after death. High in the sky, without stormy weather, bliss.
The bird skeleton sees it like in the Tui ads. 'Yeah, right'.
