PERFECT FOR A RAINY DAY
Sander Reijgers is a Dutch artist who is turning inflatable sex dolls into bizarre clothing. These lovely waterproof hoodies were made by customizing jackets with heads, breasts and (ehm...) genitals from 50 blow-up dolls that Reijgers' received from a “sponsor”. I think he just wanted 50 sex dolls and here is his alibi for recycling:
“The idea of doing something with blow-up dolls came to me after reading ‘The Malady of Death’ by Marguerite Duras. The main character of this novel is incapable of feelings for people, so he hires a woman hoping that sex with this woman will allow him to feel. I do the exact opposite with my work: I remove the sexual function of the dolls by turning them into a jacket or a bag. In this way, the doll can ‘feel’ by performing a normal day-to-day task, rather than through sex…”. Reijgers explains.
