Objectified, 2004
Mahogany wood and meat grinder
In 1978, Larry Flynt published a now infamous cover of Hustler magazine.  The image of a woman's legs emerging from the top of a meat grinder was Flynt's retort to the feminist criticism of pornography's objectification of women.  This piece imagines the role of a classical cabriole leg in the debate.  The question of desire is turned on the inanimate object: consider a piece of furniture that "wants" to be seen and appreciated as beautiful.  It may be that objectification is the unsavory flip-side of attraction, however vastly different the consequences for the shellacked mahogany chair leg.
