Malleable Manhole is a pliable rectangular rug of Singapore’s black sewer cover.




SYNOPSIS


Manhole covers, often made of cast iron, have been recreated using a material contradictory to the properties of their solid mass — one of flexibility. Set on the floor and against a wall, the soft sculpture attains an absurd and surreal quality, serving to subvert expectations and challenge habits of perception.
