MASTER RICK (née Richard Berkowitz), Dungeon Sling, Leather & metal rivets, ca. 1980’s.
Similar to Daniel Goldstein’s Icarian I Incline, which resembles the Shroud of Turin, that the artist made from the leather coverings of workout benches he bought when a gym in San Francisco’s Castro District closed. The material had been drenched with the sweat of thousands of men, for whom the gym became a community as many of their ranks fell to the disease. Master Rick’s sex sling was used by dozens of the earliest cases of PWAs, with their sweat, feces, blood & semen soaked into the leather. #masterrick #leathersling
