HMT Rigorously Physics — a custom football shirt by artist John Cake

HMT Rigorously Physics — Football Shirt


The triptych My late cat pooped in his tray and now I’m thinking about how empires crumble has some football related themes.
This football shirt amps up these themes.
A wearable partner piece to the red section of the triptych — HMP Rigorously Physics.
Worn by performers at exhibition previews where this triptych is shown.
Animates the work.
Physically brings scally culture into the gallery.

Pigments, their use as a status symbol and their role in colonialism.
A football empire — Empire of the Kop, and my Dad’s own little part in that.
The trickster — Hermes, as told by Homer.
Piles of rubble, gravel or rocks with model cannons buried in them.
On gaining power, the Medici family changed the colour of the Florentine fleur-de-lis from white to red.
The map-based concept behind god games.
The map is not the territory.

Features a Hillsborough Flames 97 tribute on the back.
