JP's Description: This was the first in the series of objects of protruding parts.
It orignated from a journey in Sicily driving through the interior of the island, which is sparsely populated and pretty bleak. At the time, I didn't have a driving license, was driving a second-hand car that wasn't mine, and was travelling with a woman I wasn't married to, with our newly-born son at the breast.
On a road with minimal traffic I suddenly saw in the rear-mirror the flashing lights of a police car directly behind me following bumper-to-bumper. Luckily, after some moments of suspense, the car accelerated and sped past. Nevertheless, the initial shock of the police behind me, and the aggressive intrusion of the image of the flashing lights remained, and became the idea for this work.
