“It moves, it is liquid, and above all it has a life of itself. The obvious anthropomorphism of this piece is accompanied by grace and mystery and finally by a grain of humour. When entitling ‘Turkey Bone’, Philippa von Bastha opposed cultural visual allusions (in this case Moore, Arp, Hadid) in a cohesive approach balanced between art and design. Having no explicit ‘mode d’emploi’, it is not to be employed but visited, challenging the viewer and/or the user. We can call it ‘Art to Use’.” (M. Nazarie)
