GoggleWorks is excited to present a solo show by artist David Bogus.
Questioning the notion that ordinary objects can become an “object of art,” Bogus encourages a debate about authorship and originality, dissolving the distinction between sanctioned museum pieces and iconic everyday consumed objects. The Bogus brand is a one-man factory manufacturing a bogus line of luxury products that no one can actually use or truly needs. The sculptures are made from only the cheapest talc clay, wares are fired to a low temperature with the brightest colors possible and he is proud to offer genuine America made products. The viewer can’t help but giggle at numerous high heels shoes and oversized punk rock necklaces, but these and other pieces fit just fine in the context of a consumer society: dress up, eat, drink, smoke, play, and have sex.
