Duck Fan

This limited edition art work by Sebastián Errázuriz Infante features a taxidermy duck mounted in a diving position and facing a custom-designed industrial fan. When the machine’s propeller is turned on, the animal’s small white feathers shiver from the resulting gust of wind. For a few seconds, the viewer fears that the duck’s delicate feathers are going to fly off completely. The duck’s continuous silent resistance steals a smile and reminds the viewer that ducks fly against the wind everyday.
