Tack Room

White Columns, New York NY
April 17 - May 24, 1998

Tack Room is a replica of an integral part of horse a barn. Cronin’s is filled with books and accoutrements of equine training and care, along with sexually suggestive leather saddles, bridles, whips and suede chaps. Images of horse crazy young girls are hung next to pages from Playboy along with Stud magazine’s "Breed of the Month" centerfolds. Tack Room is filled with objects loaded with multiple meanings, begging the question: how much is sport and how much is erotic? It depends on the lens one looks through.
