You Used To Be Part Of Something (2005): a giant pink slice of styrofoam pie mounted on top of the wooden crate in which it travels, this sculpture is in fact part of a whole set of twelve pieces (multiples) scattered across the globe – a totality (“something”) that, in all likelihood, is never going to be regained. The work also operates as a cheerful jibe at the omnipresent aesthetic of the pie diagram as a (necessarily impoverished) symbol of societal cohesion.
