The measure of all things...
can be taken by the exhibition visitors at Zappanale #26 when they have a look at the sculptures of Cynthia Plaster Caster. "Penis Dimension" is the motto of a very special area in the rooms Am Markt 3 in Bad Doberan. And also the friends of Titties & Beer are not forgotten, even if the search for beer will be in vain.
"Anything over a mouth full, is wasted!" ... so Zappa's attitude towards the state of things. And he himself once got a certain Cynt...hia Albritton (art student) to LA, took care of her and even gave her financial support. The cock-rock groupie, henceforth called Cynthia Plaster Caster, together with her friend as the "Chicago Plaster Caster" was now able to let her passions run free and expand their collection.
After some initial oral persuasion their models were made “ready”, so that they could be coated with alginate, a fast curing compound that usually applies to the dentist. Then it was only a minute or two of "Attention!" and the blank for another trophy was in their hands.
Cynthia specialized in rock stars and their environment. 30 penis busts will be on display at the exhibition, including Jimi Hendrix, Zappa's bodyguard John Smoothers and Aynsley Dunbar.
Our exhibition evergreen Helmut King could not withstand this hot topic. This year, his pictures show an impressive stability: He will revive the Plaster Caster legend in his works and represent the male appendage as the center of his current work.
Of course, this year the "third stage" will offer live music again, lectures will be held and more exhibits from the zappaesque environment will be shown.
The exhibition opening will take place on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 2 PM. It will be open daily from July 16 – 19, 10AM to 2PM. Admission is free.
