look at lucas

‘Aldgate East’ station entrance. on the right ‘Whitechapel Gallery’. we enter the building with high hopes and opened minds. prepared for some breathtaking sensations and unconventional methods of presenting the way of perceiving life.

first floor. the artist uses large variety of materials in order to ‘shake an artistic fist at misogynistic culture’ as ‘Time Out’ states. most of them ‘create erotically charged scenarios’. fried eggs presented on a stained mattress are for instance substitute of women’s breasts. however, most of the items presented on the exhibition are some kind of reflexion of male genitalia – stuffed tights, fruits, foam sculptures and photographs. all of them are representing sexualised body in mass culture.

second floor. on the main wall we see wallpaper of a male nudes set against backdrop. the whole space is filled with golden and white phallus-shaped sculptures. small, big, made of cigarettes, stone and other materials. literally wherever you look they will find you, and haunt you down. the problem is, that in one of the rooms there are gigantic photographs of a naked man sitting on a chair with random food products covering his ‘private areas’. this is it. enough is enough. i understand the whole aspect of an over-representation of human bodies in modern culture. but taking away my appetite for the rest of the day is just too much!

anyway, obviously i am exaggerating right now. and kidding. the exhibition is quite interesting reflection of modern times, and the direction towards semiology is going when it comes to mass culture. what is most important it is free. so definitely go and give it a shot!
