Consisting of combinations of bike handles and saddles mounted on wooden plates, the constructions play upon the traditional hunting trophy and send a saucy wink towards Picasso’s iconic “Bull Head” sculpture. Calling the series “Upcycle Fetish,” Scheiger explains some of the context around this tongue-in-cheek design:
Pablo Picasso saw it first and created his “cabeza de toro”. I needed a bicycle hanger. And then I needed a hanger for bicycle caps and while I was on it, something to hang my umbrella unto. And when left bare I see a tribute to my fetish, the bicycle.
