"The exhibition, John Newling: British Conceptual Artist, features a new mixed-media installation by the internationally known British artist John Newling. Newling's installation, Mine, 2005, was created specifically for the Haggerty Museum of Art. The five calves are made of resin and foam double gilded in 24-karat gold and are branded on both sides with the word 'mine: Each calf stands on a plinth and brushed aluminum tray etched with a mathematical sign identifying the work. A shelf with various objects, such as the rubber stamps used to brand each calf, accompanies each work."
