New York art magazine and exhibition space Animal commissioned Eric Doeringer to make a piece for their most recent issue/show. He came up with Contraband, a series of sculptures made out of items whose possession, sale, use, and/or transportation across state or international borders is illegal. Each item is bottled, labeled and shrink-wrapped in red plastic. The series contains 24 items ranging from hallucinogenic mushroom spores to a counterfeit Louis Vuitton scarf.
The sculptures are on display at Animal, 437 East 9th Street, New York, NY.
