Odeur de Refroidissement (Jimmy)

Odeur de Refroidissement (Jimmy) 

As exhibited at Gallery Christina Wilson, DK, 2011.

Materials: Hyperhidrosis (male perspiration), acon, wood, veneer, leather, cardboard.

Dimension: 25x12x12 cm.

The work consists of two perfume bottles presented on top of the gift box in which they are packaged when purchased. The scent of these perfumes is neither floral or woody as you’d normally expect perfume to be. Moving closer you realize that this isn’t perfume but is instead bottles containing the pasteurized perspiration from a man named Jimmy. The bottles thereby encapsulates the distinct scent of one particular individual and as the title suggest, presents the product of the cooling mechanism of the body when it registers it too warm.
