Hand-sewn sexual organs, saying no to Black Friday and a giant clay Katy Perry
We’ve done a little round-up of fairs, open studios and christmas events happening in the run up to Christmas. So say s*d off to Black Friday and say yes to British craft.
The Gagosian in New York unveiled a giant sculpture by Urs Fischer of Katy Perry in modelling clay which visitors can get their hands on.
Sleeping Hands opened at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris showcasing former residents at the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès which supports craft and design.
What was made
A hand-sewn set of women’s sexual organs for schools by Fanny Prudhomme in response to the poor provision of sex education for young people. Bravo Fanny!
