Mark Gonzales kickflips piece of artist Tom Sachs' "Barbie Slave Ship"
The true measure of art is how well it kickflips
Artist Tom Sachs piece "Barbie Slave Ship" is currently on display at the 12th Biennale de Lyon in France. But before the massive ship with pink sails was completed, Sachs invited skateboard legend Mark Gonzales to his studio. Gonz skated the rudder of "Barbie Slave Ship," which Sachs had equipped with trucks, wheels, and griptape. Of course, it didn't take long for Gonz to try and kickflip the rudder. Perhaps this is the next big thing in skateboard design.
