Paul McCarthy Phaidon 2010

20.00

Deeply disturbing, and often absurd, LA Based artist Paul McCarthy creates mock Grand Guignol performances and installations figuring animal/ vegetable/ human hybrids in a weird evocation of a national subconscious. The psycho-sexual desires and anxieties that inflect the built and media environments of contemporary America emerge in the collisions of plastic prosthetics and processed foods masquerading as bodily fluids. Visceral yet synthetic, McCarthy’s work parallels the utopian influence of European “Action Art” but with a post-modern, dystopic, TV-Land twist.
