Dorifor is a reminiscence of the famous experience of the ancient sculptor Praxiteles in creating the canon of the ideal male figure. In the 21st century, the ideal of muscularity increasingly depends on the fleeting trends of fashion. The glistening style of the inflated brutal macho man with a beard, extensible in show business, can be called the image of the hero of our time. However, at the moment there is every reason to believe that sexual objectification of the body is no longer an exclusively female prerogative. Weld Queen as an artist directly transforms the male sex symbol of modernity into an OBJECT, the main function of which is the representation of sexual potentials.
The sculpture was made in the framework of the performance «In Nature» at the opening of the first personal exhibition Weld Queen and is part of the sculptural series «Rocking chairs».
