Puppies Puppies (Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo)
Condom Filled With Spaghetti
 06 April - 09 May 2024.​​​​​​​

The ‘condom filled with spaghetti’ was initially an image that Puppies Puppies encountered on ‘IMGUR’ - a website that features some of the most viral images on the internet at any given time. The original image was a condom filled with spaghetti atop what looked liked a bed. Puppies Puppies takes this viral image and brings it to fruition as sculpture, presenting it materially, as a physical object within the exhibition space. Previous iterations of this work (via its documentation) have spread virally online, through similar networks to the initial source image, including being featured on the front page of ‘IMGUR’.
