Where to buy: Andrea Hasler

A select exhibition in a private gallery

Andrea Hasler has guts. In her current gallery show, “Burdens of Excess,” the Swiss-born sculptor has assembled an entire line of mock fashion accessories that appear to have been made from glistening human innards. Lovingly displayed on mirrored pedestals, the objects both attract and repulse the viewer. Each blob of pink, gelatinous goo has been outfitted with an assortment of the straps, snaps, zippers, and buckles that adorn today’s Marc Jacobs clutches or Christian Dior saddle bags. In Jimmy Choo Shoes (2013), a pair of the designer’s strappy high heels have been filled to unsightliness by a sweaty substance you could swear is the waste product of a liposuction procedure. At Gusford, 7016 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, (323) 452-9563. Prices range from $2,300 to $6,300.
