Art confronts female sexuality, power and p*rn

Ruth Power’s ceramics are inspired by an odd source: Japanese tentacle pornography. But the unconventional results are fascinating

CAN ART change things? Maybe the question should be: do things ever change? Looking at Ruth Power’s ceramic works, I wonder. Power’s concerns, expressed through tantalisingly beautiful yet disturbing forms, are with the nature of female sexuality, power and pornography. A porcelain torso is wreathed with tentacles; there are also delicately shaped faces, breasts and vulvas, but tentacles are everywhere.
