Big brown bag
1992

From Wall Works
Slogan stenciled on a wall in black paint,
with "bullet" trash can. Overall size of
installation 262 x 221 x 56 cm (103 x 87 x 22").
Limited to 15 installations, with a signed and
numbered certificate.


In the work big brown bag, Steinbach for the first time incorporates both text and object. Taking the ubiquitous Bloomingdale´s shopping bag slogan, he sets the bullet trash can against the slogan´s repetitive typographic curves. The essentially functional containers (bag and can) are transformed into a play of metonymic resonance.
