Over the weekend I had the great joy of visiting the museum of modern art in Stockholm. It was wonderful to see the well-curated collection again, with enriched eyes. A key piece in the collection is Monogram by Robert Rauschenberg.
While the "explanation" of the artwork speaks about contrasting perspectives, from horizontal surface and the viewer's bird's eye perspective. I, personally, am not sure this is what comes to mind when I see this work. To me, it's a play on materials, and how humans use different materials to suit their needs. And how we in that way build another understanding - the taxidermied goat with the tyre is there by human construction and almost as a way to please us, perhaps a manifest of power or just the life of man. Curious to see what others see?
