The Perky piece is a wall-hung pierced marble breast. Perky points to the intimate rite of passage of a person’s first sexual encounter, the idea of the first touch of a woman’s breast. Perky is the loss of innocence and the awakening of sexual consciousness, suggested by the piercing of the breast—a poetic reference with an iconic shape. The colour of the green marble evokes the long sandy beaches of the west coast of Denmark, where green glass is made round and soft through years of polishing by the saltwater waves.
