Nobody told me (there would be days like these)
Aran Straight Jacket 1996 (42inch medium to large)
Referencing years of psychoanalytical research into both his own and a wider social pathology, Tyszko’s practice often employs deeply personal and familial tropes. Here we see childhood memories of a maternal domesticity and fireside knitting of family jumpers, warped through a blurred lens of early drug addiction and cyclical depression into an almost perfect dysfunctional commodity.
An impossible object(ion), an Aran Straight Jacket, a failed yet comforting psychiatric restraint (with no restraint possible).
