  • Catalogue Essay

    “Between 1972-1983, I did a series of performances which involved masks, bottles, pans, uniforms, dolls, stuffed animal, etc. After the performances, these objects were either left behind or they were collected and stored in suitcases and trunks to be used in future performances. In 1983 the closed suitcases and trunks containing these performance objects were stacked on a table and exhibited as sculpture. In 1991, I opened the suitcases and trunks photographing each item. The group of photograph sin their entirety was titled “PROP”.” (Paul McCarthy quoted in Paul McCarthy: Propo, Milan, 1999, n.p.)
