Save Event: Don't you know it

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


It plays with the idea that the viewer may not get that they are looking at images of sex toys, and the idea that we still feel like discussions about sex are taboo (even though everyone does it).


“Sex is the biggest nothing of all time.” -Andy Warhol

“But you can't argue that the world isn't in an unhealthy moral state."

"Wouldn't think of it dearest. People lie, cheat, rape, swindle, kill, maim, torture and destroy. Bad thing. People also pop into bed together and cosy up. Good thing. If we think fucking is a sign of moral

decay then we're a little bit stupid-stupid, aren't we?” -Stephen Fry, The Hippopotamus

"There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion."

-Francis Bacon

“Filling the gap between explanation and weird act with stories- that's indeed what contemporary art is all about.” -Young-Ha Kim

“I think that people's sexual preferences are a legitimate subject for humour, dirty humour if at all possible.”
-Christopher Hitchens
