A self-proclaimed bricoleur, American artists Tom Sachs engages with high art, disposable consumer culture, and everything in between. Critiquing the speed and regularity with which a materialistic society replaces commodities, Sachs uses both a profusion of commercial icons in his work and builds his own functioning versions of consumer goods using re-purposed items.
Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain were all left-handed, all died at the age of 27, and autopsies reported each having a white bic lighter in their pockets. This is why it is said that white lighters are unlucky. This child-proof, genuine Bic lighter is a highly collectable piece. Made in France.
