"They’re cat beds! If you look very closely, you’ll see a lot of cat hair on them. The doll is a prosthetic mom, a substitute maternal figure, that came about very naturally... When we had a show in Germany, I decided the show needed the doll's animism, so we hid one in the gallery. But the cat started to lose its mind--it was so attached to this substitute. It sits here alone at night, so the cat must have a relationship with it. So we made another, one, and from there, it naturally started to build. .

To kick off her Instagram #takeover @officialkaariupson explains the genesis of her artwork, "Hers": "They’re cat beds! If you look very closely, you’ll see a lot of cat hair on them. The doll is a prosthetic mom, a substitute maternal figure, that came about very naturally...

"I started noticing abandoned couches on the street and falling in love with them. I began to collect them and cast them into imaginary, perverse, naval-gazing couches for a fictive home... My daughter would become mortified because I would be driving around with her, and if I saw one, I had to take it." - #kaariupson tells the story behind her series of cast couches, including the one pictured here.
