Growing Up as a Boy
overall: 430 mm x 200 mm
Ceramic pot made of earthenware entitled 'Growing Up as a Boy'. It is decorated with designs marked into the clay or in paint, silver and transfer printing. The various images include a Native American on a horse and an airplane.
The revealing and often dark subject matter depicted on Perry's pot is at first disguised by their colourful, decorative appearance. But the topics include autobiographical images (including his transvestite alter ego Claire) as well as references to political events, and investigation of cultural stereotypes.
