No Title


Conté crayon on paper

45 x 29.5 cm (17 11/16 x 11 5/8 in.)

Drawn with a coarse, frantic stroke, a large schematic hand with black contours seems to rise to the full height of a white sheet of paper, revealing a male sex that looks grafted to its palm.

A series of seven drawings Lozano made in 1962 feature the motif of a hand with a phallic finger, which gestures more or less explicitly to reveal its monstrous weirdness. The phallic motif is omnipresent in her work. Whether explicit, suggestive or even abstract, it always tends to evoke the omnipotent presence of man in our society, even in our most harmless visual world.

Acquired by the Pinault Collection, No Title was presented, with other drawings from the series, for the first time during the 2009 group show "Mapping the Studio" at the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana.
