These new works by artist Damien Duffy trace the fractures in The Large Glass by Marcel Duchamp.

The works dismantle this iconic artwork, creating a series of paintings and two sculptures, which use the network of fractures as a readymade template.

Its title is a confluence of the Brawl at Austerlitz – another work in glass by Duchamp – and Philly, or Philadelphia where the large Glass is housed.
