MET BREUER MUSEUM Exhitibion…….”Life Like” sculptures

This sculpture in  the show.  The artists are the Berlin duo……..Michael Elmgreen and Mr. Dragset.  They are defenders of gays and the victims of AIDS.

This sculpture is called “THE EXPERIMENT”. A young boy with  a few gender issues….. trying on his mothers high heels……..and her lipstick.

He see his future in the mirror……….and his future is staring back at him.

There is a lot of “food for thought” in this sculpture.
