   扒手 Pickpocket 

   Dimension variable​

   Black iron, Oil pastel, wax


Inspired by Robert Bresson's film with the same title, MAN Mei To explores in "Pickpocket" the theme of loss and gain. The sculpture replicates the arms of a pocket-picker, in which they have been merged and sprouted from the same base. Its form depicts the hand movement during the act of stealing – the action of pulling out and inserting the hand with the stolen goods back into the pocket.
