Love Is Lame, Is It?

Bitch Bear Albert

Chad Silver thinks you can measure your love in inches. For the JSx55 gallery in New York City, he’s re-imagined his deconstructionist valentine, affectionately known as the “shit bitch” bear, as a 40-inch furry giant named Albert. “He’s their exclusive love child,” says Silver. Offered in limited edition, Albert is part of Loveislame, a pop-up installation featuring an array of sweetheart bears (check out the back wall of the show).  JSx55 says, “We took a look at the glut of kitschy, pre-digested Valentine’s Day gift options out there and created products to authentically express your feelings of unending love, lust and desire to that special someone.” Also featured are Valentine’s cards designed by Tim Harrington (of Les Savy Fav fame) and “diamond” rings by AMT.

Loveislame runs through February 16th. Albert bears can be bought from the gallery directly, jsx55.com, or for other colors and sizes, visit loveislame.com.
