Well-Hung for Jesus

Art darling Terence Koh, who is Beijing-born, New York-based, and represented by Peres Projects in LA and Berlin, has recently gotten people in Gateshead, England hot and bothered because of work he exhibited in a group show at The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. Koh’s contribution includes plaster sculptures of E.T., Mickey Mouse and, most controversially, Jesus…all sporting boners.

It’s nearly impossible to find photos from the exhibit online, but Koh’s Untitled (Medusa), in which a cluster of religious icons are, uh, standing at attention, gives you an idea of what all the fuss is about:

Judging by the scale of things, I’d think Jesus freaks would be stoked.

I mean, who wouldn’t want their God–especially if you believe that He was made flesh (John 1:14)–to be well-hung?

Check out Terence Koh’s website here. He’s here, he’s queer, he’s over there getting photographed with Karl Lagerfeld, get used to it.
