Crack A Nut Between The Legs Of A Plastic Mannequin

nutcrackers-on-plastic-mannequins-installation

Wow, this isn’t something you see everyday. We’ve all seen curvy nutcrackers inspired by the female body, and we crack our nuts in them without thinking much about it, right? These nutcrackers take that idea to a whole different level. These are interactive nutcracker sculptures. They are life-size, and there are eighteen of them.

When you visit this art gallery in Dallas, you put a nut between the plastic mannequin’s thighs, and then you push down her top leg to crack the nut. Then you eat the nutty yumminess right there in the gallery. These nutcrackers were created by artist Jennifer Rubell.

According to her website, “these interactive sculptures embody the two polar stereotypes of female power: the idealized, sexualized nude female form; and the too-powerful, nut-busting uberwoman.” I love that description! You can see exactly how this works by watching the 11-second video below. I really need to get off my computer and get out of the house because I think it’s oddly interesting to watch someone crack that nut. Do you agree? Either way, it’s definitely original and very creative!

The only thing that would make me like this better would be if the bodies didn’t look quite so perfect, like Barbie dolls. It would also be nice to see a little more variety in the skin colors. Now the only question is, what kind of nut do you want to crack in there? I think in these images they were using pecans. You can learn more about Jennifer Rubell on her website.
