Designer extraordinaire Lang is once again in the spotlight with these Helmut Lang sculptures. The Austrian-born artist retired from the fashion scene in 2005 in order to pursue endeavors in fine art. After presenting other projects, for example his 2011 'Make It Hard' installation, Lang is at it again once again. The sculptures continue his tradition of using a monochromatic palette in both his fashion and other works.

Minimalistic in nature, these sexually charged sculptures do just enough to provide a phallic look. The pieces are made up of found objects combined with rubber, tar and plaster. The collection is being exhibited by curator Mark Fletcher in New York at 24 Washington Square North through until June 15, 2012.
