In 'What my brother needs is an objective', Matina Bourmas recreates the PLASTAC logo that recurs through the film Mon Oncle (Jacques Tati, 1958) hand piping royal icing directly onto the gallery surface. Through the use of repetition and employing traditional processes, Bourmas gives a playful nod to Tati’s character Mr. Hulot and his observations into the nonsensical constructed paradigm of the 1950’s ‘ultra modern’ world.
