Canadian (Erotic Eh?) Sculpture at McMichael

The press announcement by the McMichael of a series of sculptures by Ivan Eyer had the usual excitement of such gatherings. But the sculptures themselves are another matter. Even taken through the glass cases that the sculptures were in, the stills included in this video presentation show a raw sensuality that I have rarely seen in the works at that Gallery. Bare bosoms. Splayed legs. Supine female bodies. But you need top watch all the way through. How are they going to explain these works to the grade 7 boys?

Show with a Sony NX5U with stills of the sculptures from a Canon 5D. The shot of the mock-up of on of the sculptures on the grounds was shot on a Canon 5D from a moving car.
