Grotesque Mock Meat Purses
Andrea Hasler Puts Designer Brand Names on Ugly Meat Accessories

{SummaryTitle}

Andrea Hasler’s ‘Burdens of Excess’ juxtaposes coveted designer brand names with grotesque meat-resembling accessories. Although many people love toting accessories branded with names like Yves Saint Laurent, Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton, these creations make these mock luxury items seem much less appealing.

Hasler’s unappealing creations are shaped into accessories like handbags and clutches. One particularly unappealing piece features “meat” oozing out of a pair of strappy designer heels. The anti-consumerism art pieces are successful in making these highly desirable designer brands seem revolting. To achieve the look and texture of a mystery-meat, Hasler sculpted her creations in wax, but one could easily imagine the smell that might come off of these gross-looking meats.

The London-based designer experiments with attraction and repulsion in her series, transforming objects that society deems desirable into something repulsive.
