College man-in-undies sculpture causes stir
WELLESLEY, Mass. — Aremark-ably lifelike sculpture of a man sleep-walking in nothing but his underpantshas made some Wellesley College stu-dents a bit uncomfortable, but thepresident of the prestigious women’sschool says that’s all part of the intel-lectual process.The sculpture entitled “Sleepwalker”of a man in an eyes-closed, zombie-like trance is part of an exhibit bysculptor Tony Matelli at the college’sDavis Museum. It was placed at a busyarea of campus on Monday, a few daysbefore the official opening of theexhibit, and prompted an online stu-dent petition to have it removed.The sculpture is a “source of appre-hension, fear, and triggering thoughtsregarding sexual assault” for many,according to the petition, which hadnearly 300 signees on Wednesday. Thepetition started by junior Zoe Magidcalled on President H. Kim Bottomlyto have the artwork removed.That appeared unlikely, according to a joint statement issued Wednesday byBottomly and museum Director LisaFischman.“The very best works of art have thepower to stimulate deeply personalemotions and to provoke unexpectednew ideas, and this sculpture is noexception,” the statement said. Thesculpture “has started an impassionedconversation about art, gender, sexu-ality and individual experience, bothon campus and on social media.”The sculpture was placed outdoorsspeciﬁcally to get a reaction and toconnect the indoor exhibition withthe world beyond, Fischman said.“I love the idea of art escaping themuseum and muddling the line betweenwhat we expect to be inside (art) andwhat we expect to be outside (life),”she wrote.Freshman Bridget Schreiner told TheBoston Globe she was “freaked out” theﬁrst time she saw the sculpture, think-ing for a moment that a real, nearlynaked man was lingering on campus.“This could be a trigger for studentswho have experienced sexual assault,”she said.“I ﬁnd it disturbing, but in a goodway,” English professor Sarah Wall-Randell said. “I think it’s meant to beoff-putting. It’s a schlumpy guy in under-pants in an all-women environment.”The exhibit opens Thursday andcloses July 20.
