Additional information

In response to the notion that the world is too serious and short on humor, Roma Manikhin gives us a dose of satire with his saucy deck of playing cards and provocative candlesticks created for the Normann x Brask Art Collection.
A burlesque circus of 54 seductive acts adorns the playing cards, inspired by burlesque shows, sailor tattoos, erotic postcards and a late 18th century mood. Although the cards provide us with an unpleasant reminder of the stereotyped sexual portrayals of women, one cannot help but smile when presented with this bizarre and enticing world.
Drawing on the styles of 20th century Italian design, Manikhin’s two candlesticks for the collection emerge as three-dimensional representations of his artistic universe. One depicts a female head, her plump lips holding the candle in place, while the other is a full nude figure, balancing a total of three candles across both her hands and her head. The pieces are made from hand-painted concrete and untreated resin respectively; their voluptuous designs charged with humor and sexual desire.
