A prize is often materialized in the form of a medal or a trophy. These are made out of precious metals, accentuating the exceptionality of the prize itself. Frank and Robbert have made a simple change in this concept, creating a series of trophies made out of scrap wood and junk. Doing so, these objects undermine themselves as trophies, ridiculing the whole idea of ‚prize’ and ‚winning’. R&F even ridicule themselves as artists, often presenting their rubbish trophies along with their other artworks.
