German artists Mark Landwehr and Sven Waschk, better known as coarse, open the second chapter in their epic "Souls Gone Mad" series, releasing their latest new and never-before-seen sculpture, "The Passage." Continuing to blur the fine line between Designer Toy and Fine Art, this impressive vinyl set boasts a total length of 16" (40cm) and height of 11" (27.5cm), depicting three figures â the catch Ruth, the seducer Void, and an omen as his henchman â within the confines of a slightly submerged rowboat.
The sculpture catches Ruth, The Void, and Omen in the middle of a journey that will alter the course of all their lives. Having just woken up in her dream, Ruth has made her way through a murky forest, following the false promises of the bird-like omen who pledges he knows a boat that will take her home. Wary but eager to find safety, Ruth boards the rowboat. Little does she know about the frightening creature holding the oars and his plans to take her to a place from which he intends for her to never return.
"The Passage" is limited to 222 pieces worldwide and will be available exclusively from coarse's online shop on July 6th, 2013 at 11AM Eastern time for HK$3860 [approx. US$490], global shipping included.
