Anthea Hamilton and Julie Verhoeven's Sexy, Strange Fruit

At New York's Lisa Cooley Gallery, artists Anthea Hamilton and Julie Verhoeven have teamed up to wrap simple foam seating in delicious motifs of eggs, sausages, watermelons, apples, chilies, and lemons. Graced by sensuous lounging nudes, who give the boxes some curves, it's a tarty way to start the hot new micro-trend of farm-to-gallery artmaking.
