My, That’s A Slutty Lamp You’ve Got On Your Table

We’ve seen humans as furniture before, but Atelier Van Lieshout’s latest exhibition of work at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London puts fiberglass figures into some compromising positions. According to a press release, AVL has based sculptural works on the human body since the ’80s.”With a fascination bordering on obsession with the human body, this collection continues to explore new shapes and forms influenced by the human figure with all imperfections and complexities carefully manipulated to create functional sculptures that are at once abstract but also familiar.” Pretty hoity-toity commentary, considering the lamp above looks like a person slobbing a giant knob.
