Hard Bait 


2019 

2 x hard bait fishing lures (carved, coated, sequinned), glass taxidermy eyes, fish hooks, hair, plaster cast, medium, shower curtain, shower rod, and hooks 


Referencing bottom water hard baits, Hard Bait is a pair of sequinned hard bait lures. Glass fish eyes aid in imitation. Fish hooks are secured at points that maximize catch probability. Hair hangs off the end as the skirt. The lure's gapping mouths are attached to shiny blue mounds emerging out of a shower curtain depicting a fantasy sea image. The shower curtain is hooked onto a shower rod and laid onto the floor.
