Since the 1990s, Los Angeles-based artist Paul McCarthy's large-scale video projections, installations and sculptures, have placed him in the public eye. Partly through the use of a vocabulary of taboos, sex and violence inflated to an extreme, the artist has sought to unmask social conventions. The drawings shown in Brain Box, Dream Box fully disclose his line of thought and work processes for the past 35 years. What becomes clear is how scrupulous and direct McCarthy's pictorial vocabulary is and how, through the most hackneyed metaphorical analogues, his exaggerations and blowups countermine media, politics and Hollywood ideals.
