Boob Car is a soft fabric breast, pertly perched on wooden toy wheels. It is deceptively friendly and sweet; a child’s plaything. There are plenty of boobs in art, yet this piece shockingly repositions the breast from a source of pleasure only deemed appropriate for adult males. The breast is nourishment, comfort, but also amusement for the child. With breastfeeding rates in Britain the lowest in the World, yet the health benefits undeniable, this is a crucial societal problem.
