Kenny Shapiro creates sculptures that explore humor, play, sex and kink. These newest works are animals made into objects; a rug or hobby horse. “The allusion to pleasure garments purchased in the hope of ramping up one’s sex life also implies a tender longing to feel desired, sexy, vital. They are achingly sweet in a way, while also incredibly labor-intensive in their construction.” - Jorge Arrango
The works in this video are featured in “Room for Play” at the Fort Hall at Fort Andross in Brunswick.
