Juergen Teller & Xiang Jing: A Case For and Against Desire

In a dual exhibit, Juergen Teller and Xiang Jing explore the notion of desire, but in very different ways. In Teller’s photographs of chef Antonio Guida’s extravagant menu at Hotel Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole, Italy, the glistening dishes take on a lurid, fetishized decadence. Conversely, in Xiang Jing’s hyper-realistic sculptures of nude and mostly hairless female figures, rendered in fiberglass or marble, the Chinese artist strips away desire, thereby averting the male gaze.
