HAND NUMBERED AND LIMITED EDITION OF 100 COPIES. Photo Artist's book by ceramist and fashion designer Bruna Pegurie presenting her most recent project on how men value themselves when asked to expose their genitals outside of the context of sexual desire so to turn the tables on female objectification. Through the photographs of the phalluses of 13 men (gay and straight) from Berlin, Paris, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, she created porcelain penis sculptures that were later exhibited in Carnival 2018. "Lascivia shows the discovery and exercise of acceptance of the erotic feminine power without guilt. For that, provocation. Through instant photos of naked men, a long manual process of observation until reaching the porcelain sculptures of their penises as a "symbol of maximum virility". The interest of people and their behavior leads to the interview with each model, in order to try to understand the masculine patterns of power and fragility. The same dichotomy present in the porcelain, which also rigid is easily breakable." --Page . ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE TEXT (Inventory #: 112396)
