Visual Arts Workshop: Love In the Age Of Silicone

In this discussion we will explore the phenomenon of the RealDoll using the work of Japanese photographer Azusa Itagaki and Craig Gillespie’s film Lars and the Real Girl.

Often referred to as love dolls, these high-end, life-sized silicon sex toys appeared in America in the 1990s. This session will consider how are ideas of female beauty are distilled into the body of a doll. Beyond their erotic function, we will consider the qualities that locate these dolls on the border of inanimate object and idealised woman. Tutor: Alessandro Bucci
