Méret Oppenheim

Object (Breakfast in Fur), 1936

Ma Gouvernante, My Nurse, mein Kindermadchen, 1936

Oppenheim is interested in capturing sensation with physical metaphor, and chases down that interest very well. These two are sensations your body forgot about and your mind has never come across - the wrapped-up in velvet hot swallowing, and the tight invitation of pressed together thighs.

The fur is from a Chinese gazelle.
