Inspired by Russian novelist Dostoevsky’s compulsive gambling habits, AGAIN draws upon our natural attraction to the challenges of playing with chance. A re-purposed arcade coin pusher is stocked with hand-crafted porcelain, terracotta and a handful of 24ct gold gilded coins. You may wish to gamble ceramic coins in the hope of achieving gold. Will you enter a wager with this artwork?
