ALICE’S LANG ORIGINAL
— 220,00 €
Alice Lang Originals” is an ongoing series of interconnecting boob and butt mugs made from a scaled down 3d body scan of the artist Alice Lang. Each mug is cast in doll porcelain and hand painted to render an atomically correct replication of the artists body, complete with nipples, freckles, moles and current pubic hair.
Modeled off novelty boob mugs which present a distillation of the objectified female body, this anatomically correct rendering of the artists own body seeks to subvert the symbolic value of the original objects through presenting a specific body rather than a cartoonish one.
These vessels straddle the line of decorative and functional as they have no handle, forcing the user to cup or grip the breasts, ass or groin in order to use it. This action is intended to instigate mindful social interaction by making the user playfully complicit in this parody of the objectification, dissemination and consumption of anonymous women’s bodies. This interaction seeks to examine the female body as the site of objectification and explore how women can enact ownership and agency over their own body within this complicated context.
