Crocheted Phalluses by Andrea Pritschow

July 23, 2014


German artist Andrea Pritschow's body of work consists of hundreds of multi-colored crocheted phalluses. Pritschow challenges the traditional formula of male artists eroticizing female bodies by taking on stereotypically 'female' craftwork to not only eroticize but domesticate masculinity and male virility. Her knit castrations use de-contexualisation and abstraction to also call into question the idea of profanity within the art context.
