Footnotes

  • 'Bronx Sisters' is likely to have been inspired by an earlier work by Paolozzi entitled 'Lady Robot Orchestra' that was included in the Noah's Ark exhibition in the Stadtmuseum, Munich, 1989-90. Paolozzi would often use found objects - sometimes these would be cast or at other times broken up and reassembled. 'Lady Robot Orchestra' was made up of the bodies of old puppets which belonged to the museum. But for 'The Bronx Sisters', the figures are made with newer materials.
