Muhammed (Muhammad)

Year 2008 I made work of art about freedom of speech.
Black textile sculpture is functional. One can sit on it.
It was given name Muhammed.
Does it portray the famous prophet?
Or a person with same name?
Or itself, and happens to have name Muhammed?

Many interpretations of names and words can be seen a richness.
Freedom of speech must be used.
Getting hurt doesn't justify illegality, death threats or act of terrorism.




Sculpture is in private collection. Cat in photo has no connection to the news.
