The piece “Feeble” is based on a tale of Aesop in which a goose laid golden eggs. At the same time it refers to the modern quest for the sublime, demonstrated in Constantin Brancusi's infinite column. Also, there is the element of the new beginning. The newborn, the art object as a commodity and the tragic destiny of artists that escape the rules imposed by the art market....The title is a word play with the phrases Fable and Feeble.
