A series of photograph portraits of bald men (viewed from the rear) smeared in oil: an image that represents an exposed penis. In many of the images, Yudkovik bestows upon the smooth heads an “aura” and thus glorifies the “object”.

Jacque Lacan differentiated between the penis, as the male organ in its biological sense, and the phallus, as part of the symbolic and imaginary function of this organ. In Yudkovik's series of photographs, the close-ups of these bald heads become phallic images that look almost pornographic: male exhibitionism, physicality and eroticism as an analogy of anatomy.
