“Child Pusher”: installation
ryanbarrett’s “Child Pusher” is a tension infused installation consisting of twelve sculptures based on child transportation devices, specifically antique prams, strollers and carriages. Using his signature motif–a skin of set mousetraps–he transforms seemingly banal objects into spring-loaded metaphors. Evolving over time, the traps go off and are not reset. The sensitively conceived and delicately wrought sculptures aim to disturb.
