Leather Goods That Bring Up the Rear


Among the strange objects by Argentinian Nicola Costantino on exhibit at The Hours: Visual Arts of Contemporary Latin America at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art are a soccer ball and a bag with realistic reproductions of human nipples and anuses, respectively.

The artworks are meant to comment on capitalism’s inhumanity to animals, and feature realistic latex copies of human skin, of course. At least I hope.

The exhibit opens this month and is the largest show of Latin American art ever in Australia.
