Troy's R Horse (Sad Tropics)

This black and white sculpture is like an old photo with a Marquisean vahine on a horse, following the classic myth of happiness promised by travel agencies. Yet this Troy’s horse resembles an unstable outrigger canoe and is ready to turn over. The horse’s head has split and the insides reveal what is really happening in French Polynesia nowadays… Sad Tropics!
