Type A is a collaborative team of the artists: Adam Ames and Andrew Bordwin. For Prize (folly) they have created a monumental, white athletic protective cup that appears to have toppled from the hill where it was mounted and cracked in two. The work celebrates machismo while also representing its vulnerability.
