“I think the Japanese male sexual complex originated in the two-dimensional world,” says super-flat superstar Takashi Murakami, proclaiming himself the inventor of three-dimensional, life-size renderings of anime-style cultural sex objects. This time, he had collaborating sculptor BOME make him a fiberglass, baby-faced trollop toppling from her vast, disproportionate boobage, based on the manga of Seiji Matsuyama (“controversial” creator of My Wife is an Elementary School Student, ahem).

The show also features giant, shiny, engorged genitalia and free cardboard DIY models of his cubical child sculpture, also made with art elves. Takashi Murakami, Jun 28 – Aug 5, Gagosian Gallery, London
