Christmas. Remember back in 2007 when Paul McCarthy turned commercial gallery Maccarone into a fully operational chocolate factory that made these?
Over six weeks, the factory produced and sold over 1,000 of these pricy chocolates/cheap sculptures daily (check it out in operation in the top video). This year, he’s doing it all over again at the Monnaie de Paris as part of his first major solo exhibition in France.
Those of us in the antipodes can even get in on the festive action by purchasing McCarthy’s sweet treats online – choccie santas and the classic buttplugs – oh, I mean ‘trees’ – are $75 each. Merry Christmas!
