Lacoste: An Art Exhibit for Label Queens


If you're bored and you're in Athens you may want to check out an exhibit which is currently showing at the Benaki Museum. Fifty Greek artists have been commissioned to create works based around the Lacoste Crocodile.

I'm not sure what the intent is of this piece which features a swimmer covered with the logos, but somehow I can't help but think of Star Trek's Data covered in roaches. If we're lucky, somewhere there's a reclining nude of Andy Roddick.

Uh, Wardrobe Malfunction!

  1. This statue is an updated version of an ancient greek Kouros (I think that's the right name) that you'd find copies of in most museum antiquities sections - I've just seen one here in Atlanta at Emory Univ's Museum.

    So that's what the intent of the piece is - an artist's re-interpretation of a historical sculpture.

  2. I noticed it was the Kouros statue, but applying the Lacoste logo haphazardly all over the body does not seem to flatter the company, what could it say other than "label whore"?
