One of the sculptures included in Michael Parekowhai’s current Venice installation¬†On First Looking into Chapman‚Äôs Homer is a pair of crocs made out of bronze. ¬†These rubbery eyesores caught Australia’s biennale representative Hany Armanious’s attention too. ¬†In 2007 they featured prominently in his installation Year of the Pig Sty at Foxy Production in New York (below).
